I've mostly used the free VMware server and player, but thought the networking 
support was about the same as Virtualbox.  What have you found that is 
significantly different?  So far I mostly prefer VMware server for the ability 
to run the console and disconnect/reconnect where with virtualbox you seem to 
have to decide ahead of time if you want a console or not - but I'm not a big 
fan of the new web console in the 2.x series.
