somebody said they had it for a while (v4) and when i read it was oct 2011, i was confused.. now i see the 3 categories.. did vSphere  & Workstation 4.0 come in 2010?
Andrew Hancock (VMware vExpert / EE MVE^2)VMware and Virtualization ConsultantCommented:
Ah, it's probably that VMware Player 4.0 ships with VMware Workstation 8.0.

VMware Workstation 8.0. was released on 14 September 2011

Many people complained that they could not install VMware Player 4.0 seperately, without installing the full VMware Workstation 8.0.

VMware Player 4.0 standalone was finally released 4th Oct 2011 as a full download from VMware.

VMware Workstation 4.0 was released in 2005!

vSphere 4.0 was released in 2009!
