Sure it doesn't hurt MS to release a Virtual PC for free. The revenue generated from that products was probably negligible anyways. But what about VMware? Weren't the server (GSX) and enterprise (ESX) product lines their main source of income? And now VMware Server gets released for free! I don't think VMware did this proactively but rather in response to Xen's growing market share.
