Overall Satisfaction with VMware Player

I personally use VMware for many reasons such as being able to access Linux OS for my project or testing a program.
  • Free
  • Easy to use
  • Built-in DHCP service which is shared by all NATed VMs
  • No VM snapshot
  • No support for a virtual monitor
  • Limited cmd line interfance for managing
  • Can't be installed on OS - X
  • Doesn't cost anything.
  • Easy learning curve which means less time on learning on how to use the program!
Both free, VMware supports USB 3.0 while VirtualBox does not. VMware supports nested hardware-assisted virtualization while VirtualBox does not.
If you can't afford VMware Fusion and are ok with limited features, this is excellent program to use and best of all, it's free!
