    VM world is very cool n interesting. I wonder why only vmware and virtual box. I don,t hear a lot abput parallels, they started with lot of (net)media attentioin. Also some other linux virtualization software, I hardly hear about them now a days.

    At home, xen and kvm are underrepresented, but at work ...
    Well, take a look at Amazon EC2, it's Xen. Then SUSE comes with Xen built in and RH have started shipping with KVM. Still, VMware leads big time.

    In your article you mentioned that VMware Player cannot create virtual machines.

    "What if you're running VMware Player, which cannot create virtual machines?"

    I think the latest version allows you to do just that.

    "Do I need another VMware product to use VMware Player?

    No. VMware Player enables you to create and run virtual machines. However, if you need to leverage powerful developer-centric features such as Teams, multiple Snapshots and Clones, or Virtual Rights Management features for end-point security, you will need to upgrade to VMware Workstation."
