I’m Having An Affair – With VMware Player 3.0

94357119_a311b1f708_m[1] If that title won’t have my mother calling me… Well, at least it someone’s attention. Prior to VMware Player 3.0 I never gave it much time of day. Sure it worked, and sure there was a way to work around the create VM limitation and the like, but it just wasn’t… well, you got what you paid for. Besides, I had a VMware Workstation license from my VCP test, and did not have to worry like some folks. Now… that has all changed.

It has been a little bit since my last “Incident” with my laptop, and at the rate that I’m going, for my daily needs, VMware Player is quite good. Like your Dad’s (or depending on that generation your) Datsun pickup truck. It works. It works well, and consistently. It may be rough around the edges in some areas, but all and all it is a solid package, and likely deserves a second look. Heck, it will even run, and has an easy installer for ESX!

Have you tried Player 3.0? Liked it? Disliked it? Discuss in the comments.

  • Player 3.0 is great. Good enough that I can drop VMware Server for my workstation. Solid, easy to install, and unity works great.

  • I'm in the same boat as you. I have a workstation license key from VCP3 but I wanted to run Window7 and ESXi/ESX in vm's. So, I took Player 3.0 for a spin and I haven't looked back. The only thing I miss is the snapshots but I'm living without it for now. I've been very impressed with the product!
