If you are a software developer who needs to test various applications or operating systems, you may have encountered VMware Workstation. This software provides a virtual machine that enables you to run and test different operating systems using the same computer. You do not need to reboot to be able to access each one. It can run any applications that you are using in your computer. It is very convenient since you do not need to create different partitions for operating systems to function. It works well with Linux, Windows and now can even support Windows 8.1. For me, this program is ideal not only for software developers but other technical professionals as well. Computer-based trainers, technical support professionals and QA engineers are some of the people who can take advantage of this software. The latest update is a bonus since it will fix issues that were encountered by its users in the past. VMware Workstation provides an extensive range of features that will truly benefit individuals in the technical field.

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

By Pablo Conde Ferrer

On Monday, November 24, 2014

Workstation is a highly technical topic in the computer world. In the office scenario, it is most commonly referred to as the area where we work or an individual’s work area, thus workstation. For PC enthusiasts however, not to mention network administrators or analysts, a workstation is a host computer, not just a server, which acts as a virtual machine that can control remote computers running on different operating systems. Such power can be found in one of the most popular workstation developed by VMWare. Not focusing on its negative side, VMWare’s initial release of their Workstation has resulted in the discovery of a number of known issues that were thankfully resolved with the release of their Workstation version 10.0.1. It was a phenomenal release do to the fact that it provided fixes to many problems with the software. In the previous versions, Workstation’s interface crashes whenever large virtual machines were cloned. It cannot launch when working in Linux OS. Hot plugged SATA virtual disks do not work as well. These are among the issues that I noticed that were resolved in this release.

Pros

  • User interface is more stable
  • Changes in Tools menu does not cause black screen anymore

Cons

  • Computers with high specifications is required
