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

--- 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.

It works well. As a web application developer, this makes a lot of sense. I can have several different OS's installed on my machine.

Excellent piece of software. VMWare player has evolved to replace VMWare Workstation now.

It looks as if it will not run in linux with a windows machine. ??
Windows with a linux machine yes, but why bother. Just buy a cheap minipc.
Down link does not work and what's with the having to give them your firstborn just do download it?

WOW, someone with a rock solid VIsta install. Lost touch with VMware and the like but recently back into and it works as designed on 7U_x64

I switched from virtualbox to vmware player b/c of superior usb support. i am still a fan of virtualbox, but they really need to address this problem.

Two previous men obviously have their Windows installations broken.

It's rock solid, I've been using VMWare for more than ten years.

I was driven away from VMware Server due to its totally unusable web-UI, and its huge burden of bugs.
I gave VMware another chance testing Player, and I installed it on a rock solid Vista system with good hardware and all updates applied.
The result: VMware Player totally crashed the system twice in a few hours.
The last hours of my life I allow a VMware product to waste.
Goodbye VMware, I hope to not hear you any more in the future!
