VMware Workstation 6.0 (17-July-2007)
VMware Workstation 6.0 has been out for several months now and enjoying great success - (released on 09-MAY-2007). Some of the new feature to VMware Workstation 6.0 include: - Support for Windows Vista - Support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 - Support for High-Speed USB 2.0 Devices - Multiple Monitor Support - Increased RAM Support For a full list of features included in this newest release, see the "VMware Workstation 6.0 Release Notes" at: http://www.vmware.com/support/ws6/doc/releasenotes_ws6.html Over the past week, I put together several new articles that provide detailed instructions for installing the VMware Workstation 6.0 software as well as creating virtual machines for Solaris 10 (x86) and CentOS Enterprise Linux 5 (which can also be used for installing Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5). Installing VMware Workstation 6.0 - (Windows XP) Creating a New Virtual Machine - (CentOS Enterprise Linux 5.0) Creating a New Virtual Machine - (Solaris 10) VMware Workstation 6.0 provides me with a virtual machine that can run the Windows, Linux, or Solaris x86 operating system simultaneously with Windows XP on my laptop. This allows me the flexibility to perform new installs or test new features of the Oracle database while not interrupting my "somewhat" stable Oracle install on the laptop. VMware Workstation 6.0 and a 30 day evaluation key can be obtained directly from the company's website: http://www.vmware.com/ ---------------------------- Jeffrey M.
