VMware server from Ubuntu official repositories

I think its kinda hidden. You might have wondered why vmware-server kernel modules was available from the repositories but no vmware-server? The answer is: It is available!

Just like Real Player, Opera and other commercial software you can install VMware-server from the following repository, which you add to System -> Administration -> Software Sources and Third-Party Software:

deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu feisty-commercial main

After that you run:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install vmware-server

A colleague pointed me a page about adding Adding Canonical Commercial Repositories in Ubuntu, which is actually referenced from the page about Installtion VMware Server in Ubuntu.
