    Considering that VirtualBox is opensource (free), what capabilities does VMware Workstation bring that justifies its cost? o_O

    VB is fine, I use it with no problems. I guess you pay for better support, software integration and development. Oracle develops VB so that is a worry, so much 0-day comes out for them I'm slightly worried running VB :mad: :mad:
