That's nice - you can get the virtualization environment for free. You just can't get the tools to manage it...

Well, you can get the tools, it's just that they're not free.

That's how they suck you in. Just like a drug dealer. A little taste and when your hooked, bam, time to break out the big bucks.

I don't understand...":O}

Why would MS give us stuff we can't use unless we buy stuff? Wouldn't it be a tad more honest to simply give us the tools when we buy the virtualization environment software...?

OH Snap! I see!

This way MS "looks" like it two is giving stuff away as others are doing in the virtualization environment software field, while really they are just trying to trick you into buying what is available for free...

Gee MS, your not a nice person! ":O}
