I need to download vmware server for windows.
I went to the following site and found 2 files there VMware Server 2 and VIX API 1.6 for Windows.
I don't know if I need to dowload them both or just VMware Server 2.
Is Vmware workstation free? if so, is it better than the free vmware server 2.
which one you recommend to use for free, VMware Server 2 or Vmware workstation?

Thanks

Yes, VMware server is free.

No, VMware Workstation is not free - but it is by far the better product - it has more features and you don't have to contend with the awkward web interface.  As their name implies, VMware Server is best suited for a multi-user environment, and VMware Workstation is suited for private development on your workstastion (if you see what I mean).

If you're new to virtualisation, VMware Server is great, but an alternative solution to something more appropriate for destop use is Sun's VirtualBox.  It's not as good as VMware, but is quite new and better than VMware server if you only want to run it on a desktop.

If you want more help on installing and using VMware server, you need to be more specific.
