Installing VMWare

There are two VMWare products: VMWare Player and VMWare Fusion. VMWare Player is for both Windows and Linux, and it is free for personal use. VMWare Fusion (and Fusion Pro) are for Mac OSX. These are not free, but available at discounted pricing from the University Center VolTech store. Additionally, if you’d just like to try it out, there’s a 30-day free trial of Fusion available. More details will be below. This page is still a work in progress.
