VMware Player

Alternative To: Adobe Flash Player

The free VMware Player lets you run pre-built virtual machines on your desktop. You can run multiple operating systems side-by-side, easing the process of software development, testing, and evaluation.

Virtual machines developed in VMware Workstation, ESX Server, or VMware Server can be run in VMware Player.

To run the VMware Player, just run /usr/bin/vmplayer from within X.

Note: You will also need the VMware Player kernel modules to run vmplayer. These can be built from source from vmware-player-kernel-source, or you can install a pre-built vmware-player-kernel-modules package for your kernel.
