What's the difference between VMWare Player vs Workstation? Is it that Player is for non-commercial use and workstation isn't?

"The main difference is that VMWare Player can run, but not create virtual Machines. Workstation can do both.

Update: It appears versions > 3.0 now include the capability to create Virtual Machines, but as stated by hawkdsh, it still lacks some of the advanced features such as snapshots.

You may also want to check out VMWare Server which is also free.

More information on all of them here."

"From 2015, there is a change of names: Vmware Player v.7, it stops being called thus.

With VMware Workstation v12 there are two products: Workstation pro and Workstation player. With the Workstation player you can also create VMs.

VMware Workstation Player is free for personal non-commercial use.
