    Virtual PC available for free now as well

    http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtualpc/default.mspx

    Not as feature packed as VMWare but doesn't require IIS like Virtual Server and VMWare Server. And since it's now free, who cares?

    They've also announced that Virtual PC 2007 for Vista will be free as well.

    I don't believe it. VMWare forced Microsoft to give their product away for free. Pity Linux hasn't had the same effect. It would've made our budget bid a lot easier
