Introducing VMware Player

I just read on Owen’s blog that VMware have released a a free player that enables PC users to easily run any virtual machine on a Windows or Linux PC. According to VMware, 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.

I haven’t tried it yet, but it sounds interesting. Could this be a master move that leaves Microsoft’s Virtual PC dead in the water?
