VMware Player Review

I've significantly improved my desktop processing productivity


Valuable Features:

By using a VMware player, I've significantly improved my desktop processing productivity. By having multiple VMs running in the background for testing software, running scripts, or doing other CPU intensive tasks, I can get a lot more accomplished without interfering with my programs running in the forefront on a PC or another VM.

Room for Improvement:

The initial setup is quite easy, but can be daunting to someone unfamiliar with desktop computing environments.

What operating system are you running on VMPlayer guests? Did you find any decrease in performance on your PC while VMPlayer guests are running?

You said that the initial setup is quite easy. Can you tell me, please, how much time did you spend with the initial setup?
