Version of VMWARE now free....

Post by murphy666 »

Just for the developers to know that there is now a version of VMWARE that is FREE. The name is VMWARE PLAYER and is available here : http://www.vmware.com/products/player/

Maybe it's time to create VMWARE image for release version.

Not being able to create your own virtual machines is the biggest limitation, apparantly.

Other than that it looks quite good :)

I think this is not a real problem, the VMWARE virtual machine file are just plain text file that you can edit manually (the .vmx file)

VMWare images in the SVN

This is a really good way to get some easy testing going, just imagine how easy it would be to get a new testsuit tested by very many testers, or imagine how easy it would to get someone new to ReactOS to get a complete computer running featuring software, net, graphics, usb and a lot more.

Nice! That would be very useful for users and testers.
I used vmware before and it's like 10x faster than Qemu...
So it would be a good idea to create an image for vmware too.
