    The missing cost????

    Great to know it's available however the licence fee for business use seems impossible to find easily - knowing how much it costs would seem pretty basic information prior to spending time evaluating something? ! ?

    ditto. We're looking at VMWare right now and it would be nice to see how this stacks up.
