No wrong answer

vmware for portability and for its support community
vmware for a larger range of guest OS support
vmware is a standard in the industry
The vmware virtual appliance community is huge and this will help you
play and familiarize yourself with virtualisation.

question about Virtual box, they claim to be the only GNU
virtualisation product, then why are their packages in archive:

deb gutsy non-free
