VMware Workstation 7 released to the public today
A product beloved by many has advanced with a long list of improvements. I’ve been using it since I was invited to the technology preview and I think it’s taken a huge step forward. One of my favorite features of the new version being a Virtual Admin is it’s native support to run ESX installs withing VM Workstation. In prior releases it was possible with some manual tweaks of the vmx file. This also is the 10 year anniversary of the workstation product.
