Editorial This day-after-Thanksgiving, when many Americans are enjoying a day off and several others are at work goofing around on OSNews, we decided to ask you: what's your "killer app?" What's the one app you can't live without? Sound off in the comments - one app only!

I had my first encounter with VMware in 2001.
The product has evolved tremendously.

For me as an OS enthusiast both private and professional VMware can't be substituted.

You can make single vm's, clone existing ones and asign them to a team. In addition you can make snapshots,screenshots and even record live usage.

If i have visited distrowatch and are interested in a particular distro, the only thing I have to so is download an iso and let it boot in a VMware vm. More often i make a snapshot of the particular OS so i can revert from snapshot at any given moment in time and have an updated system.

Simply amazing.

Oh btw i personally have the insight Google is irreplaceble too.

I rest my case.
