Christoph De Baene was early with the news on the blogosphere that Virtual Server 2005 R2 is now a free download. The word is getting out very quickly, and I’m sure a lot of people will now download it for the first time.
I’ve used Virtual PC 2004 and Virtual Server 2005 since they debuted, and I was recently impressed that VMWare had decided to offer the server edition for free. This competitive move has undoubtedly influenced Microsoft to compete in this space.
Congratulations to both players for competing, which is always better for the customer and industry advancements.
