I've used VMware Player and VMware Server2 for about 3 years.

More recently I came to a new project where the "law" is VirtualBox and
I started using VirtualBox.

Both systems allow you to make your installs.

My experience up to now is: I've only used fresh installs; several
Linux'es, Sun10, WinXp and Win7 on VMware; several Linux'es and WinXp on

Both allow bridged networking, host-only networking and NAT networking.

I found VMware more professional while VirtualBox seems faster and
easier to use.
