        About time. I had expected this for several months now. I wonder if VMWare will make their workstation product free as well.

                I don't think it is out yet... i thought from reading the above site that it was to come out soon. like around the time Vista comes out so it will be around next decade or so if it continues at this rate... :blink::wall::rock::rock:(sorry... listening to Dragonforce. Bought there CD and and rockin!!) :rock::rock:

                  2004 direct download link

                  Not that I don't think this is great but VMserver has been free for 8 months or so now.

                  So what they are saying is they will offer a free download of V PC 2007 in 2007 and that it will support vista. Nothing said about a beta version.
