VMware, Inc. offers a dramatically new approach to personal computing. VMware frees developers and end users from operating system constraints -- without risk - and can significantly improve the overall computing experience.

VMware is the first application to liberate the PC from the constraint of being able to run only one session on one operating system on one machine. The company's patent-pending VMware Virtual Platform(tm) technology is a thin software layer that allows users to:

  • Run multiple operating systems concurrently on a single PC-without repartitioning or rebooting.
  • Isolate and protect each operating environment, and the applications and data that are running in it.
  • Interoperate among each of these operating systems, including full networking, device and file sharing, and cut-and-paste capabilities.
  • Undo changes made in a given session.
  • Encapsulate and manipulate each operating environment, and have the ability to roll back and restart an application, or move an environment among differently configured machines.
