4 out of 5 eggs VMware Mature 10/31/2008

This review is from: VMware Workstation v.6.0


I had this prod. since v.3,4 when machines pen3 and limit 650. It always a reliable, OS crash restore OS, then all apps installed under VMW be there back in business within 1hr, that include reinstalled Win2K. Install Linux, so easy as 1,2,3. If you sick and tire of Window Upgrade just take the vmdisk and copy over Linux. Whala! You are in business, but not H-V. If you love to bring your dvlping machines with your labtop, whala! copy that then run...
Too, many good things about this product BUT see the cons.
I had 2K8 Standard think about the advantages of Hyper-V free but the H-V VBus are suck, video only limit 16bit and static size, no sound... H-V not good for the graphical environment dvlp: render-farm, nor video editing...


It limit the cpu max. 2, that meant 2 cores. Event you have P4 CPU 4 cores, or 2 Xeon, 8 cores just only use 2 cores. Oh well, I know why they do that for people hunger cpu cores like me to upgrade ESX cost $1,000...
On the other hand, the H-V have no restriction at all, take advantage of your HW.
