VMWare Goes Free in Bid to Counter Microsoft Virtual Server
VMWare Goes Free in Bid to Counter Microsoft Virtual Server: "Just how inexpensive is Virtual Server? Microsoft announced last month that customers who acquire one license of Windows Server 2003 R2, Enterprise Edition can obtain the high-end Virtual Server 2005 R2 Enterprise Edition at a reduced price of $99 through June 30, 2006. But even the normal Virtual Server pricing isn't horrible: Virtual Server 2005 R2 Standard Edition retails for just $99 while the regular retail price of Enterprise Edition is just $199. Previous to the R2 versions, Virtual Server cost $499 for Standard Edition and $999 for Enterprise Edition."
