VPC supports more operating systems... but I think is less optimised in
some respects. Given the purpose of such a tool, I think the "more OSes"
feature is more important, but YMMV.

Problem with VPC is you can't actually buy it now.

Hmm, really... who'd've thunk it, a MS product with More OS support than a
competitor
I've used VMware with Linux(a couple of recent distros{from 99-03}), Solaris
x86, all Windows flavours(including PE and CEx86), and it is really quite
cool, I have recently played with VMware GSX Server too, and it is even
better than Workstation(individual IP's for each virtual machine).

You can, just not the MS version, you gotta get the *old* Connectix version.

Except join a domain (amongst other things)
Which is one of the things most of our NT4 customers require as they
already have domain-based networks...

Haven't played with VPC (yet. Oi MS where's my beta copy you promised
me ??)
I have to admit, I *do* like VMWare though...

But can you? When last I looked they were not going to sell that either
(other than stock already in channels). You could download a demo only.

errr, well yeah, the company no longer exists, of course the only copys that
are available from already in the channels.
And the new version doesn't get released until late Q4 2003
