 First look: VMware Player

Well written article about the new VMware Player.

"But no true geek is going to be content with just a Web browser. So, pretending to be a true geek, one of the first things I did was start installing other applications. I could have downloaded one of the full OS images conveniently provided at VMware's site, such as Fedora Core, Minix, or OpenBSD. But it was more fun to do it myself. This stripped-down version of Ubuntu includes a copy of gnome-app-install, which lists available applications for me to select, then downloads and automatically installs my selections. I installed games, office productivity software, Evolution groupware, the XChat IRC client, and even the GRAMPS Genealogy System."
