  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:

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:
