    Too lazy to search .... guess that makes me too lazy to point out VMware Player, VirtualBox etc.

    I am quite certain that it took you more time to come to MDL, log in, and post this thread than it would have taken to do a Google search. What do you have going on in your life that you are far to busy to do some research on something you are interested in, but expect others to do the research for you?

    Installing, configuring, and using any virtualization software is going to take TIME, something that you are inferring you have none of to spare.

    What I am trying to tell you is that had you posted a thread stating "Hey, I did some research and found x,y, and z software for virtualization, and my end goal is to run Windows Server and client VMs for x, y, and z reason, does anyone have some opinions on what may work best?", you probably would have gotten several useful follow-up posts and spiked some good discussion to give you a really good idea of what software to look for.

    Instead, you gave next to no background info, and stated that you simply don't have the time to search on your own (implying that you want others to do the research for you), and all you got was my response...make sense?

    Truthfully, I was casually browsing the site with "nothing better to do" and found your thread. I was a bit annoyed that your post implied that your time is more valuable than someone elses and that they should do the research for you. Sad? You could say that, but at least I know how to use Google.
