 Review: VMware 4.5.2

"Virtual machine software allows you to run one operating system (and its applications) from within the environment of another. For years the most recognized name in virtual machine software for the x86 architecture has been VMware, whose eponymous industry-leading product supports a wide variety of guest operating systems. Recently EMC Corp. bought VMware, and has since released VMware Workstation 4.5 for $199. The most recent release is 4.5.2, which adds 64-bit host operating system support. There isn't much that VMware Workstation can't do, except perhaps achieve the level of performance that a genuine installation of the guest operating system enjoys."
