VMware Player 1.0 is released

Now this is something cool that almost everyone will find very handy. If you are a developer, engineer, architect or just an enthusiast and want to play around with a few different configurations, the best way to do that is using a Virtual Machine. So if you got a hold of some beta’s or demo VM and to use it till now you had to have a licence for something along the lines of Virtual PC or VMWare Workstation. Not any more! With VMware Player, you can “play” (i.e. run) those virtual machines without buying a licence. You cannot create virtual machines using this, but you can open them and run them – perfect for the handsouts from the PDC you have been attending. Not to mention, VMware can also read your Virtual PC images, how sweet it that? So, whats your excuse for not getting this? If you are interested you can compare the various versions here and see how they stack up.

This blog is my personal blog and while it does reflect my experiences in my professional life, this is just my thoughts. Most of the entries are technical though sometimes they can vary from the wacky to even political – however that is quite rare. Quite often, I have been asked what’s up with the “gibberish” and the funny title of the blog? Some people even going the extra step to say that, this is a virus that infected their system (ahem) well. [:D] It actually is quite simple, and if you have still not figured out then check out this link – whats in a name?
