Yes. Actually I do also play around with KVM and a ton of other

But I get Workstation basically for free as well. Call it a fringe
benefit of having a VCP, VCAP-DCA, and a VCAP-DCD, while leading a
rather large Cloud infrastructure practice that specializes in
virtualizing business critical applications (aka VBCA).... :-)
Workstation also works very nicely with all of my vSphere systems that I
have to take care of as well.

And, to be fair, trading out Workstation for KVM is trading one set of
headaches for another. Voice of experience on that one...


PS: If you want to know more about VBCA stuff, just Google "Cognizant
VBCA" and look for the video VMware posted of me. I'll be teaching the
Oracle virtualization course next month at the VBCA Boot Camp at Partner
Exchange. Look me up if you're going.
