Re: VMware workstation and VMware player

VMware player does not cost money, but - as the name suggests - it is intended to only run existing virtual machines (VMs). People have built their own tools to create VMs, though.

VMware workstation has many more features and allows creation / modification / suspension+resuming / cloning of VMs. It is not free, but I beleive that it is worth the money. Which means that I don't know much about the player ;-)
