VMware Player 4.0 Free Download

VMware Player is a free and easy to use desktop virtualization software which enables a computer to emulate a standalone working environment of the operating system and work with it as with the conventional system. Using this software you run multiple operating systems at the same time on a single PC , but with somewhat slower speeds. You’re not restricted to Windows-based operating systems, either. VMware Player runs virtual machines created by VMware Workstation, GSX Server, or ESX Server, and also supports Microsoft virtual machines and Symantec LiveState Recovery disk formats.

The benefit of this software is the ability to test various software under various operating systems on a single desktop, without adversely harm the current system. It can make life easier for developers to develop and test cross-platform applications and lovers to work with new applications or OS. VMware Player can also be used to run a virtual copy of an old PC so that you can recycle the old machines you have under your desk or stored in the closet.
