The snapshot tree and cloning has not been developed, yet. But the other stuff 
is in the free version. I just tried to boot a Monowall VMDK from 
http://www.xs4all.nl/~brugh/projects.html and it worked.

For a normal user, VirtualBox seems to be the best solution in the free 
software world, so far. It provides more than VMWare Player (except for 
USB-Support) and a little less than VMWare Workstation.
