USER REVIEWS

When we hear the words “virtual machine” for the first time, it may sound complicated and technical. But when we get familiar its function, that’s when we get to appreciate its features and various uses. VMware Workstation offers a virtual machine that can run diverse applications using different operating systems at the same time. You can use it on Windows, Linux and other OS. You can test and assess multiple programs in a stable environment. What I find very practical about this software is that I can use only one PC to do all these activities. Moreover, if you are using a Windows 8.1 computer, VMware Workstation 10 can now convert it to a virtual machine which is great. You will be able to work faster and easier with the use of this powerful and valuable software. The developer also released an update to fix issues with this program. If your work is related to the technical field, you will find this software very helpful.

Pros

  • Support for Windows 8.1 is provided
  • Works well with Linux and Windows

Cons

  • Software needs high computer requirements

Install more Operating Systems on your PC without any risk

By Chris Larrage

On Friday, April 25, 2014

There are sometimes that you need to install a virtual machine, and you have no clue about how could you do that. Fortunately, VMware Workstation offers an easy solution for that problem bringing an application for installing these VMs on your own computer. Rest easy, it looks more complicated than it really is. Follow the simple steps that will show you the wizard included in the application and in not son long time you will have finished the process.

Some of the things that users claim about virtual machines is that they take too many resources in order to run them properly, and that is something that is kept that way no matter how much time passes. With more or less recent computers, VMware Workstation works fine since it optimizes the available resources and allows choosing the resource settings you want use for it.

This VM software supports Windows versions up to the new Windows 8 and other kind of OS. I’ve tried many similar programs, and I think that this VMware application is good enough for general users. The same company counts with a good variety about this kind of utility, so if you check that this one does not fit your needs try a more advanced version instead.

Pros

  • Easy installation of Virtual Machines
  • Support for advanced 3D graphics

Cons

  • Some functions are not available in this version

Relevant Issues Resolved with the Release of the Free 10.0.1 Update

By Christine Diaz

On Wednesday, June 18, 2014

My workstation is commonly known as the area or personal space where I, or any employee, work. It has a computer, table, and chair, with all the work paraphernalia that an employee needs. The area or space is usually limited within a cubicle or office partition. In the information technology world, a workstation is very different. It is a special computer with the main purpose of managing and operating scientific or technical applications. VMWare’s Workstation is a popular brand with such functions.

In the 10.0.1 update, VMWare was able to resolve some known issues with their Workstation. Its Easy Install function was added with support for release to manufacturing (RTM) versions of MS Windows including 8.1 and Server 2012 R2. The problem with the VMWare Player, that comes along with the Workstation, where it freezes whenever other apps freeze was resolved as well.

What makes VMWare’s workstation so popular is perhaps its support of many operating systems. What’s more, in the release of the 10.0.1 update, VMWare improved the compatibility of their Workstation with CPUs based on AMD.

Pros

  • Supports many operating systems from various developers
  • Resolved many known previous issues

Cons

  • It requires high computer specifications

Create virtual machines

VMware Workstation runs security scans and analyses your operating system. It will keep everything under control and offer a huge amount of possibilities. Everything that could damage the integrity of your computer and its perfect functioning can be controlled at any time.

The main intention of VMware Workstation is to create virtual machines. What’s best is that there is no limit to the amount of virtual machines created, only what the hardware supports. It could seem quite complicated and, in fact it can be, depending on your user level. Nevertheless, if you’re a beginner you can still use it without taking advantage of all it’s tools.
