If that title wonâ€™t have my mother calling meâ€¦ Well, at least it someoneâ€™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 wasnâ€™tâ€¦ 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. Nowâ€¦ that has all changed.
It has been a little bit since my last â€œIncidentâ€ with my laptop, and at the rate that Iâ€™m going, for my daily needs, VMware Player is quite good. Like your Dadâ€™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.
