Microsoft made a big splash at LinuxWorld on Monday, announcing the availability of Virtual Server 2005 R2 as a free download and making a pledge to support "select" Linux virtual machines on its platform.

Beat you by two hours [webmasterworld.com], but nonetheless...

Anyone here have much experience with Virtual Server? My partner and I use VMWare, and we're already debating whether or not we should give VS a kick at the can.

Just not sure if we should bother. Anyone here know of a big advantage to VS over VMWare? It's one of those things that even if VM is overall a better solution, VS might gain some space in our solution if it has some advantages only in specific areas. Running two pieces of virtualization software would be a pain, but potentially a neccessary evil.
