VMware makes bid for virtual desktops

VMware has moved to strengthen its credentials in the desktop virtualisation market today, with the release of two new products. The company has launched VMware Player 2, which includes beefed-up support for modern hardware and is available free, and VMware Fusion for Mac – which isn’t free, but does allow Windows applications to integrate with the Mac desktop.

VMware Player 2 allows you to run 32- and 64-bit applications and operating system environments distributed as a virtual appliance, using under either Windows or Linux as the host OS.

Virtual appliances are pre-built, pre-configured and ready-to-run software applications packaged along with an operating system in a virtual machine. You’ll need paid-for software such as a copy of VMware Workstation or Server to create a virtual appliance, however. Alternatively, more than 460 virtual appliances are available for download from the VMware site.
