Well, YMMV may vary with VMWare also. I bought VMWare Express because I wanted
to support their efforts and because it was something I wanted to use for legacy
support while continuing to run Linux as a desktop.
However, a few months later they discontinued support for it, and now I cannot
run it under RH 7.2 or any installation with a recent kernel. I emailed them
expressing my extreme off-pissedness and they replied with a semantic content
of 'tough, we make more money this way'. Fuck 'em. In future I'll just use
expiring 30-day keys for their full product, as it's obviously not worth paying
them money for it.
Wine is at least open source and continually evolving.
