I just picked up a copy of vmware 6.5. Or, I think I did. The guy who runs our local computer repair shop passed away a few weeks ago, 44 yrs old, massive heart attack. His wife is clearing out the shop and is selling off everything - hardware, software, etc at ridiculously low prices. I picked up a box of CD's he had created for $5, and some other things. The very first CD I looked at has vmware 6.5 and the license. It's over 450mb size. On checking, I discovered that this should run on Vista. First - is it legal to use? I'm assuming it's on at least one computer that the man had. Second - On a Vista HP laptop 1.8 intel dual core and 2G RAM, does my laptop have enough horsepower to run it? My plan is to run XP Home, maybe fool with some malware, or just have a place to check out new software. My old desktop, XP Pro with only 512RAM is, I know, out of the question.
