This is NOT a free version of VMWare. It's just a free runtime for the virtual machines created with the full version. Could you perhaps update the thread title adding "player" or something along that line to it?

Well, a "virtual machine created with the full version" is just some text files describing the virtual machine and its hardware and some big files for the hard drive which can be raw files created with dd... so I think it could be regarded as a free version of VMWare ^_^ you just need to manually create the virtual machine (or if ou are too lazy to do so, you can write a GPL GUI ^^)

an ebuild for the vmware-player soon ? ^__^

I'm just wondering if any one plans to make an ebuild for the free VMWare player? ( www.vmware.com/download/player ) I think it would be a really cool ebuild.
