    What about the USB capable player bit, combined with steadystate? Both free, both useable.

    Yes, although it doesnt handle coping of VMs as well as VMware, it takes some fiddling to change the disk UUID.


    We've been messing with virtualbox for a kiosk VMplayer that gets autobooted into fullscreen mode with no (well, secret) escape.

    There's a provision for that on the commandline...damned if I can recall what though..Vboxcopy or Vboxclone, or similar. All my home machinery is Vboxed..

    I'm sure VMware Server ticks all the boxes:
    • It's free
      It supports USB
      It supports snapshots
