VMware Workstation 16 Pro for Linux and Windows


VMware Workstation 16 Pro is a hypervisor tool that allows you to run multiple operating systems as virtual machines on a single physical machine. Each virtual machine (VM) can run its own operating system and apps, all concurrently with the host machine. VMware Workstation is developed and sold by VMware, Inc., and there’s also a free-of-charge version for non-commercial use called VMware Workstation Player, as well as a 30-day trial for VMware Workstation Pro. VMware Pro 12.x and above only support 64-bit host operating systems. VMware allows you to simultaneously run operating systems like various versions of Microsoft Windows (including Windows 11), Linux (including Ubuntu and Red Hat distributions), BSD, and MS-DOS. It also includes the ability to group multiple VMs in a folder, treating them as a single entity for powering on and off, beneficial for complex client-server testing.
