VMware Workstation 11.1.0 is one of the best desktop visualization programs that allows you to run multiple operating systems on the same computer. In other words, you can create and run Windows Vista or Windows XP virtual machines and run them at the same time with your Windows 7 or Windows 8. This is possible thanks to this very intuitive software, full of features and options. At the same time, both the real and the virtual machines will share some PC resources while other resources will be specifically dedicated to either one of them.

Talking about user interface, VMware Workstation has one of the best user interfaces we have seen. It is very user-friendly and provides great usability and functionality. You can run it in a window or stretch it to full screen. There is a menu bar and a toolbar on top that provide access to all features and functions this application has. Working with any virtual machine is exactly the same as with your real one. You can restart, shutdown or ever put to sleep any virtual machine.
VMware Workstation allows you to cut, copy and paste files between any virtual machine and your real one. You can drag-and-drop files, images, videos, URLs, text and so on.
