Vagrant VMware plugin now free and open-source

Having started using Vagrant a little while ago with VMware, and finding it a bit annoying that they were charging for a licence for the VMware plugin for Vagrant, I was pleasantly surprised to find that they've recently open-sourced it and removed the need to buy a licence.

Relevant links where I noticed this / it's documented:

* [VMware Provider | Vagrant by HashiCorp (](
* [Frequently Asked Questions - VMware Provider | Vagrant by HashiCorp (](

This is really good news - since most of my peers are already using VMware, this removes the stumbling block to adoption so I hope to see lots more Vagrant use popping up in my organisation soon.
