This is successor to VMware GSX Server

PS: I searched the forums and saw no previous reference to this...

VMWare Server & VMWare Workstation 5 are not the same.  Basically the (now) free VMWare Server is the former VMWare ESX.  It requires a Host Operating System to run; GSX does not, it runs on the Raw Hardware.

See their site for full details.  http://www.vmware.com/

I said that backwards by the way... ESX runs on the hardware... GSX run inside and OS.
