So very much off topic but I can't resist :)

I like vmware a lot because they have made good products and have
been a very long time supporter of linux. I have been using vmware
since before 1.0 back in 1999 or maybe late 1998 on linux. In 2003-2005
I used a bunch of VMWare GSX(again on linux), worked well, never let
me down. In 2007 I started using ESX 3, so far only used the foundation
version not the enterprise, but it's dirt cheap, $999 per 2 sockets,
the same exact software was $3750 per 2 sockets a little over a year
ago.

It's among the most solid pieces of software I've ever used myself.
