VMware releases free VMware Player

VMware Player is available for download. It basically allows you to run VM's that are built in Workstation, GSX or ESX on a machine without having to install a licensed copy of those products.
This is huge for training, labs, or vendors who want to distribute a copy of their product without having to have folks install a base OS to test something out.
I hope this pushes Microsoft to do something similar with their product line also. Even though both Virtual PC and VMWare workstation are relatively cheap products they still are not as widely available as one would like to see.
