I use VMware but had issues where the mouse movement within the VM was sluggish to the point it was unusable. However if I enabled Remote Desktop in the VM then just use mstsc.exe to connect from the host it's all fine.
Did you have the VMware Tools installed? That would affect the mouse performance.


Yeh I eventually figured out how to install it but it made no difference. Prefer Remote Desktop anyway as you can put a shortcut to it on your desktop.

I typically have 2 or (or more) Linux Virtualbox instances running concurrently under Windows 10.


But if you are using Windows 10 then you probably have the option of running them straight on Hyper-V? Just an option.
I get pretty regular emails on VMware reductions so I'm not convinced the rare discounts message is necessarily true.

To throw another option in I actually prefer Parallels on Mac. However, as I am using Linux and Windows more and more I have switched to VMware only now. Having used Virtualbox I really think VMware and Parallels are a different class to that. I also have had much more difficulty migrating VMs between Virtualbox and the other two but it is so easy with VMware or Parallels. If you are Mac only get Parallels as it is cheaper and better in my opinion but VMware by far the best cross platform.
Also really not sure why people are recommending cloud or server based solutions as that is a totally different area and use case. Good luck running those on a plane or train without wifi!

I prefer VM Fusion on OSX/MacOS, I like how the Mac is able to swipe between operating systems, just so slick.


Yeah I prefer fusion out of all the OS but still prefer parallels overall

Luckily for me, they got it right on Fusion 5.
Sub-Total £27.82
Total £31.99
Pricing for me on the VMWare Workstation upgrade is mucked up. Click the £56.81 link, and it shows as £56.80, add it to the basket and it becomes £65.32!

All prices of course ex-VAT - GRRRR

Have some heat, but an email is winging its way to VMWare who NEVER seem to get their special offers right!

Due to its complicated licensing and some confusing changes to its product names, I recently ditched VMware products and migrated to VirtualBox. Saves a lot of money, and I think I prefer it!
Yeah, Fusion looks like a good product. Especially for the money.
I would go for Oracle VM VirtualBox. It's the best for the money (ie free). See below for a comparative review against VMWare.

Desktop virtualization smackdown: Parallels vs. VMware vs. VirtualBox
great product, regularly use it for work. Easily worth the money.

Version 4.1 allows you to run Leopard and Snow Leopard as clients. Handy if you have any Rosetta based applications you need to run. If you update from that you lose that ability.

This is the link for Europe and the price drops to £26.66 and includes VAT

im having the same problem, trying to get the academic version no error, and no discount.
Have you registered your copy of VMware Workstation 7 on the VMware website?

This is what I had to do before it would let me purchase the v8.0 upgrade. VMware won't let you proceed with the order unless they can verify that the serial number from the version you are upgrading from is valid.
Not working for me to upgrade from my version 7 to 8, it just silently ignores the code. Tried deleting cookies, it made no difference. Of course for the upgrade copy you have to log in to your vmware account, which possibly makes a difference.

VMware Workstation does quite a lot more than Player. e.g. snapshots/clones, the ability to share VMs over the network, drag-and-drop VMs from Workstation to vSphere.

I work with VMs all the time at home and work, so the extra features in Workstation are definitely worth it.


Good find OP - just what I'm needing for doing some training. :D

Doesn't seem to work anymore... entering the promo code WORKSTATION and clicking Apply does not reduce the price from £32.85 (pre VAT)
Cheers
Yes. When you go from v3 to v4 none of your VMs are touched.

The first time you start up the Windows 7 VM in Fusion 4, make sure you install the latest VMware Tools if it doesn't prompt you.
Just a quick question, can I upgrade from v3 without having to reinstall Win7 etc?
jomppa
can you then run Windows in this inside pace? like parallels?

Yes.

Virtualbox is free, works perfectly well but isn't quite as easy to use or as polished as fusion.

Great find, thanks. I've bought this to use with OS X Lion which should now be supported as a guest OS.
I'm very happy with Virtualbox, and the price is certainly right! Works well on both PC and OSX. Have used Parallels, Virtual PC, etc. before, and certainly prefer Virtualbox.
Parallels 7 has just been released the other week with a speed boost. It will be interesting to see what Fusion brings to the table.
Virtualbox is also coming on leaps and bounds, though.
Good deal and voted hot, but boo hiss to VMWARE for not giving version 3 users who purchased before July 2011 a reduced price upgrade!
Get price for a great product BUT not sure I'll be buying this version. Boot camp and a dropbox work fine.

Pleased to say I finally got my cheque in the post today. It was dated 19/01/2011 so may have something to do with the email I sent.

So for those of you who are still awaiting their rebate I suggest sending an email asking what the hell is going on.

Did u buy it from Amazon.

Yeah. Are you still awaiting your rebate? How long has it been and have you tried emailing them?

The 'go to deal' link is http://www.vmware.com/vmwarestore/fusion_upgrade_promo.html - for some reason it just doesn't work via that button but should be fine if clicked in this posting.
Parallels 6 slams Fusion 3 for now on Win 7, well worth the upgrade !

whats the difference between this and VMware workstation?


I am using VMware for more than 3 years now.
Player can be used to play the VM's created using workstation.

VM workstation is the program you will have to use to create your own VM (i bought this)

Yes this is true that you can run multiple OS on the same machine provided you have enough RAM and HDD space both of which are no more a constrains these days...
So as far as you have the VM for the OS you wishing to run (either you created one or downloaded from net) you are good to go with the VMware player..

Also Player is free from day one and this is not something that is made free now.
