The answer to this question depends largely on whether you are running Windows XP, Windows 2003, or Linux. If you are running Window XP the you should get started with VMware Player since VMware Server is not supported on Windows XP (no IIS 6 on Windows XP). If you are running Windows 2003 or Linux then hands-down you should start off with VMware Server. I use it for all my personal virtualization needs, (I gave up Workstation as great as it is,) and I will be talking more about it in an upcoming article.
