Re: VirtualBox or VMware?

VMWare is expensive.

For a desktop full virtualization deal, Virtualbox is dead easy to use.

VMWare is more mature.

VMWare is more suited to servers and large infrastructure.

Windows users should stick with MS Virtual Server. Everyone else should use VMWare or Xen or KVM or Virtualbox.

Virtualbox does server support through Remote Display Protocol. VMWare does more in that area. Again, VBox is very easy to use, but VMWare has better control and administration.
