    Reviewing 5.0.2 (Apr 3, 2013)

    VMware player is free and easy to use. I think the ability to download a vm for hte virtual appliance workspace makes it very usage for testing. The run a vm on multiple machines for a lab environment could be a cool use

    Reviewing 5.0.1 (Nov 8, 2012)

    --- VMware Player is free for personal non-commercial use. VMware Player is available for commercial use as part of VMware Fusion Professional

    Their licensing changed with version 4 I think, so I dont consider that free.
