OSNews, Generic OSes The open source Bochs, VMware Workstation by VMware, Inc. and VirtualPC from Connectix are applications that virtualize or emulate the x86 hardware, allowing you to run multiple operating systems on top of a "host" operating system that these three applications run upon. This means that you will be able to run Linux or FreeBSD or other supported "guest" OSes under Windows, Linux (or Macintosh), inside a window or fullscreen. But which one delivers the best performance for the money? And what about the free Bochs?

VMWare Pricing $$$
by gh351 on Fri 10th May 2002 15:52 UTC

Too bad VMWare ended the Express version and the "hobbyist" pricing for Workstation. I'd certainly buy a copy if it was $100. So would most of my friends. For $300, I'll just keep an extra machine around to run Windows.
