Can I use VMware?


Hello,

Is VMware free for personal use? or is there any alternative to this? I want to run w$ndowns in Linux as virtual OS.

Cheers!!

Hi,

Yes you can use vmware server edition. It's free and will run your windows os without any probs.

I think this is the right link:
http://www.vmware.com/download/server/

Yes, the VMWare Server is free (as in beer). I'd recommend VirtualBox if you want something open source (although there is a non-open source version with slightly more features too).
