 VMware Workstation 4.5.1

"You can install VMware Workstation 4.5.2 on either Windows or GNU/Linux, and earlier versions (before version 4.0) have native ports in FreeBSD. The supported guest operating systems for 4.5.2 are too many to list individually, but you can install various versions of Solaris, GNU/Linux, Windows, FreeBSD, and DOS. For this review I tested GNU/Linux as a guest operating system, but in the past I've installed Windows 2000 and Windows XP on version 4.0 and 4.5 using Fedora Core 2 and SUSE 9.1 Professional as hosts, and found the only problems to be exceptionally poor performance of the optical drive and a problem I never solved with printing from within Windows."
