VMWare Workstation is a proprietary hypervisor software that runs on 64-bit editions of Windows and Linux. Unlike QEMU and VirtualBox, it does not run on 32-bit operating systems (although previous versions did run on x86 operating systems) and is closed source. It also requires a license to use. (VMWare Player does not require a license but is somewhat limited). However, it is more powerful than QEMU and VirtualBox, being capable of running graphically intense programs and even video games. It can run several operating systems including Windows, Linux, BSD, Solaris, OS/2, eComStation, Novell NetWare, Mac OS, and limited support for Windows 9x, MS-DOS and Windows 3.1.

Running on CollabVM[edit]

CollabVM currently does not support using VMWare as a virtualizor. However, CollabVM 2.0 is planned to include VMWare support. When VMWare support is added, more information will be listed on this page.
