It's not a "pay one", it's just non-free. In fact, Sun was really reluctant
to name conditions in which I would have to pay for a license. But I have
it in writing that I can put it on a commercial server without paying for a
license. If I then clone that server many times, they want me to pay.

No you don't. It comes with Host (bridged) interfacing out of the box, and
has for a while now (since 2.0 - last I checked it's at 2.1.4).

You don't have to pay for VirtualBox in any conditions where you wouldn't
have to pay for VMWare (vmware _workstation_ is not Free, either).
