    Which is a good reason to use one of the Free virtualization solutions. Sorry VMWare, but you won't get my business with those practices.

      Well while publishing benchmarks may be a big concern for you, simply being able to benchmark on my own, with my setups and equipment satisfies my needs as those benchmarks are going to be completely relevant to my needs. Keep in mind that even VBox is not fully featured unless the closed source version is used.

        and the cs version, which you can also use for free, works very well. I don't see any reason to use vmware for my virtualization needs.

          Ya it's getting there. It still is missing some features that vmware does well and it's just been fairly recently that VBox started implementing some of the more advanced features such as multicore support.
