Inquirer nuts about VMware Workstation 6!

Creating a virtual OS from an install DVD went smoothly, just as we would have hoped for with no problems. VMware offered a minimum spec in processer but we’d advise a reasonable Core Duo, especially in the installation stage. As it can be a system hog at times. Importing an OS went well too, all though not every OS could be brought across - some of the old NetWare systems seemed to have trouble.

It has been confirmed that VMware uses Workstation as its own test-bed for features to be seen in their grown-up products VMware Server and ESX. So look forward to seeing some of these abilities in future editions of their platforms.

In Short
Whatever your use for VMware Workstation 6, whether development, disaster recovery or IT literacy - version 6 is useful.
Really, I will be demo'ing a complete datacenter workshop on my laptop with my workstation demo in Africa! Let me rephrase myself, and this time in capitals: COMPLETE VIRTUAL GREEN DATACENTER ON YOUR LAPTOP.

Anybody would go nuts on this product! I have my hands suck deep into it since 2000! Never have looked back. I will make videos so you can see it all in action there.

For now check out the L'inq.
