Crashing lately

I prefer it to Virtualbox, much easier to use and user friendly but I find v11.0 to be crashing and lagging a lot lately.

Yes, free is always good but not necessarily better. It all depends on what you want to do with virtual machines and whether the product provides you with the mandatory features that you seek. VMware Workstation is geared towards developers, testers, trainers and people who just want to tinker with operating systems and environments.

Considering all the additional features you get over other alternatives, $189 (heaps cheaper for students, educational institutions etc) may not be a lot of outlay if it saves you time and effort.

No doubts Virtual box (SunMicrosystem develeloped) is the best alternative to VMware

No comments. VMware is just the #1 virtualization platform both in the Linux & Windows worlds.
