Well, that's good news but, to be honest, I'm a bit nervous about using vmware, 
citrix, anything that's not just plain open source. I fear that once I've 
adopted these things, licensing could change, I would be forced to change 
everything that I've spent so much time and energy on. Or, features keep being 
put into the 'commercial' version side, slowly trying to force me into buying.

Quite honestly, I love the non commercial products not because they are free so 
much but because things don't change, they don't often suddenly become bound to 
licenses, etc.
