Then you'll enjoy seeing message
"Proprietary license: taints kernel"
when they're loaded. There's just so many
things that can go wrong with such a
development model, that it boggles the
mind why VMware haven't been able to
give a GPL license to their module code.
I guess now that they're owned by EMC,
there's even less chance of that.

I'd prefer to focus my energies on studying
xen and linux, rather than VMware.
