What’s the better choice: VMware or Virtual PC?

I've been experimenting lately with some build script (and since I already have ASP.net web part under source control) the script should do that at the end.

  1. Grab the "naked" Windows 2003 IIS VMware or Virtual PC image from the network
  2. Boot it up
  3. Copy the files from the Build Folder to the server
  4. Install it
  5. Do whatever else is needed

However, I've actually never tried automating a Virtual Machine and I've seen both VMware and Virtual Server offer automation facilities. I know I can't use Virtual Server but Virtual PC works.

Has anyone had experienced with either VMware Server or Virtual PC 2007 (in terms of automation)?
