Overall Satisfaction with VMware Workstation Pro

When it comes to software testing & deployment, VMware Workstation Pro does a splendid job in virtually running any desktop operating system for running our software products on multiple platforms, all of which can be effortlessly done from a single computer. Furthermore, the ability to operate several Windows 10 OS's & Linux distros at once has saved me a ton of time from switching back & forth to dual-booting operating systems - a cumbersome task if you're to be dealing with numerous, real machines.
  • Running various Windows & Linux OS builds flawlessly
  • Best-in-class sandbox tool for software deployment & testing
  • Software product demonstration
  • Easy to clone & transfer Virtual OS images to other computers, thusly saving time on reconfiguration
  • Minimize to system tray sometimes refuses to allow me to exit the software completely, thereby forcing me to terminate VMware Workstation Pro in the background using task manager for saving on system resources (ex. free more RAM for other tasks)
  • The latest build of Mac OS Monterey doesn't seem to work out of the box
  • Windows XP (for personal use) suffers from blurriness - an unseen issue with other OS I've tested on VMware Workstation Pro
  • Saved over 5000$ of electricity bills this Q1 compared to Q4 of last year
  • Reduced number of desktop computers & laptops, thusly saving cost on additional hardware & lesser risk of hardware failure & data loss
  • The dramatic increase in the internal space in the company office

Do you think VMware Workstation Pro delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with VMware Workstation Pro's feature set?

Yes

Did VMware Workstation Pro live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of VMware Workstation Pro go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy VMware Workstation Pro again?

Yes

For testing out early builds of our software suite prior to releasing them for commercial use, demonstrating & showcasing software features & functionality, VMware Workstation Pro does a perfect job in handling the aforementioned tasks. Backing up virtual OS images & redeploying them later in case of data corruption is extremely time-saving & relatively safer when compared to testing software on a real machine, where in case of an OS data failure can take an eternity to restore to a previous backup - a time-consuming task averted using VMWare Workstation Pro.
