I totally agree with you and I would like to say that this program is plain and intuitive, with a wizard design that walks the user through each step of the virtual machine creation process. The opening menu lets him select whether he wants to create a new virtual machine, open an existing virtual machine, upgrade to VMware Workstation, or view the program's HTML Help file. VMware Player is very easy to use, even for novices, and the HTML Help file is well written and thorough. The program may not be as full-featured as some other virtual machine applications, but it should meet the needs of most users, especially those who don't want to purchase software.

Very nice software that can be used without any cost. Useful for those who want to play virtual machines on their desktops rather than buying virtualization servers.
