Hello, Im wondering why people have purchased WMWare workstation rather than using virtualbox or anyother product? I currently use virtualbox and have for a few years now. A few of the features of WMWare do seem good. 1. snapshots. 2. graphics acceleration (virtualbox has it but only experimental) 3. physical to virtual. other than the fact its a paid product the only downside I see is that WMWare workstation has multiple services running in the background where as virtualbox only has one service while the gui is active. im also wondering how stable WMWare is overall during the time you have it and how seemless the updates have been. I have had quite a few crashes with virtualbox and issues with upgrade installs.
