What is the general feeling about the type 1 true hypervisor from VMWare 
, their ESX Server, and Xen as a hypervisor ?  Other than free v's pay 
for it of course.

I originally was of the opinion the VMWare Workstation, their original 
offering wasnt great as it had the host o/s layer, however this type 1 
seems quite nice.

I do wish their naming convention was easier to understand - what 
component of an enterprise set up is what for example :)
