    I've written a review of VMware Player 4, a free cross-platform virtualization product tested on CentOS 6.2 64-bit with Puppy and Ubuntu guest operating systems, with good performance and stability and easy installation, ability to create and open virtual machines, Easy Install support, VMware Tools, Unity mode, 3D accleration, removable device support like printers and web cameras, and other features.

    No snapshots? Why bother. Virtualbox FTW.

    Agreed! VMware Workstation is the best with snapshots. The snapshots are like Rollback Rx, meaning very quick to take a snapshot and then very quick to roll back and forth in the snapshots.

    Best regards,
