I was using Virtual Box up until very recently to run Arch on my Windows machine.. that is until I was able to try VMware.
I guess I specifically like it because of it's cloning option. I like to have several different versions of the same VM on my desktop (software testing purposes) and the vmware cloning options help me get a cloned vm up in 10 seconds.
Besides that I find VMware doesn't take as much of my Laptops battery, which is especially helpful because I need Debian and Latexila to take notes in class.
What do you guys think?
