VMware Player

VMware Player is a closed-source virtualization software whose binary installer is distributed by VMware. VMware Player can be used free of charge for personal non-commercial use, while a commercial license (also known as “VMware Player Plus”) can be purchased. Using VMware Player, one can create and run a guest virtual machine (VM) powered by unmodified 32-bit and 64-bit Linux and Windows operating systems. VMware Player can also run existing virtual appliances created by other VMware products such as VMware Workstation, VMware Fusion and VMware vSphere.
