Earlier this week, VMware released version 6.5 of their desktop virtualization software. A while back, I reported that I was having some issues with Workstation 6.0 running on Fedora 9. I am happy to report that all my problems have been fixed in this release. I no longer have to connect to my virtual machines using rdesktop.
This new version also comes with a fabulous new feature called Unity. Unity allows you to run applications from a virtual machine instance side-by-side with the applications on the host desktop. This means I can build BizTalk applications in Visual Studio while browsing a blog post in Firefox without toggling between desktop environments. Kudos to the VMware Workstation for this release.
