I have a lot of experience with VMWare Player but when I tried VMWare server I couldn't get anywhere with it. I want to try it again on Ubuntu 10.04. How is it different from Player? If I want to use it to run Windows inside Linux, and log into it from the host computer, can I use server for that? How does it work? Do I just RDP or VNC into the virtual machine? I remember that it doesn't give the host computer a graphical interface like Player does.
I only used VMWare server on Windows, so I hope this translates to the Linux version as well. The Server edition has a remote web control interface if I remember correctly. While VMWare player can, to my knowledge (maybe it changed) not edit virtual machines, server should be able to do so without a problem. Also, Server can run headless, so it can run in background without having a GUI openend all the time (Which is interesting if you have Linux Virtual machines without GDM or equivalent installed). Hope that helps.
