Re: vmware installation

What VMWARE product are you talking about?
You can download a copy of VMWARE server form the VMWARE website. You can also get a free license there. But you do need to create an account and register.

Re: vmware installation

vSphere is an 'umbrella' name and VMware ESX is part of the product set. It is a bare-metal hypervisor and cannot be installed on top of Windows or Linux OS.

Re: vmware installation

ESX/ESXi is not a host-based hypervisor, it is bare metal. I think you are looking for VMware Server, it is totally free. It has two versions, for Linux and for Windows. You can say in some way that VMware Server is an intermediate step between Vmware Workstation and Vsphere.
