Run Multiple Operating Systems At Once With VMware Player

We’ve lavished attention on VirtualBox here at MakeUseOf, and for good reason. However, VirtualBox isn’t your only option for creating and using free virtual machines.

Of course, this only applies for users in the US and Canada, but it’s an awesome feature nonetheless, and one that users should most certainly take advantage of.
