Hi,

          Does vmware help run windows and linux simultaneously. Or does it allow both to be loaded on a system. Which does happen otherwise. How then is vmware useful.

BRgds,

kNish

VMware allows you to create virtual machines on your hard drive. So, you can get VMware for Windows and install it. Then, in VMware, you can install a guest system - another Windows system, a Linux system of several different flavours (I have RedHat, SuSE and Ubunu machines). Once the guest systems are running, you can run them simulaneously with Windows (the host system).

You can also buy VMware for Linux, use Linux as your host system and run Windows as a guest system.

The key benefit to VMware is that you can run several different systems simultaneously.

There are other programs like VMware, but VMware is one of the most robust in my opinion.

VMWare allows you to create and run many servers, desktops, etc.

VMWare can be very usfull for buisness and cost, you have run 10 to 15 computers for the price of 1 for example.

VMWare is also very good at giving best performace for both host and vms.
