Whoops, I should probably clarify my terms before this thread blows
up. By non-free, I mean software not available under a Debian Free
Software Guidelines style license.

So by free software variants of VMWare, I meant some virtual machine
approach that is available as free software. To my knowledge none of
the VMWare stuff is free software.

(I don't mean to say that the nonexistence of a free vm player is a deal
killer here; but boy does it hinder testing, analysis, and overall trust.)
