VMWare is a bit of a pain. We use xenserver at work, it is the dog's
danglies for what we need. I use VirtualBox on my work desktop tor testing
stuff though, its nice.

Hi all.

Just to let you know I am FED-UP with VMWare - Server!!
I have been wrestling with it on Ubuntu and other distros for TOOOOO long
The latest is just the final straw!!
I have redone my PC to have 10.4 on and loaded VMServer on (with all the
patches!! I found on the internte to get it installed), but then the Console
could not be used to open VMs and had to use RDC / VNC etc.
I have followed numerous "fixes" but none seem to work:
Downgrade Firefox from 3.6.xx to 3.5.xx did not work
Extracting and installing the remote console separately did not work
And then with every new version of FF or Linux kernals / headers you have to
hope and pray all will reconfigure!!!

Now I am switching to VirtualBox! Hopefully this will provide a solution, I
am a GUI person so KVM is still a bit too much for me if you have to every
time make use of a CLI, I guess there are GUIs for it but VirtualBox seems
to be easy enough to not take too much time of my daily routine.

The big box still run ESXi though...
