Good evening experts,
my question is really broad , but I want to get down to the minutiae of learning all three virtualization paradigms, Vmware, Hyper V, and Xenserver. Micsoft , EMC, and Citrix are all players in the virtual server world and what I want to get out of this discussion is :
Which do you prefer
Which one is easiest to learn
Which one can be downloaded for trial installation
Which one lends itself to minimal setup requirements (including nic)
You may be thinking right now that I am completely lazy and this information is readily available on the net. Nothing could be further from the truth. I am not lazy, I simply trust experts exchange more than I do other resources. you are my eyes and ears when it comes to some technology I need to get myself up to date on. With that said, let the discussion begin. I look forward to your comments and/or advice on which direction each of you prefers and a simple reasoning behind the decision.
Note: I have some equipment that may or may not fit the bill for a proof of concept install ( all Dell stuff, Optiplex's)
