OSNews, Generic OSes VMWare released today the VMWare Player, a freely downloadable tool that 'plays' virtual machines (it just doesn't let you create any). This can prove a very important tool for OS makers who would like to demo their OS to new users, users who don't want to burn live CDs and also keep the OS makers safe from any hardware incompatibilities in the user's machine (as the OS would run inside VMWare Player, the compatibility is always guaranteed). VMWare already posted a demo for their VMWare Player, a 200 MB 'Browser Appliance' based on Ubuntu.

Well I reconfigured the boot sequence to boot from my Suse 10 ISO and surprise surprise the installation started just fine. It looks like the drive is writable between reboots. So really you should be able to install just about any OS on it...
