VMware workstation 6 Beta is out

VMware Workstation 6 Beta has been out for almost a month now. I tried it out and some of the features are really nice. The one I like best is that virtual machines can be left to run in the background now. That, combined with the integrated VNC support means that you can run a virtual machine on a headless remote location and then connect and manage it with VNC. Pretty slick.

An annoying "feature" of the Beta is that it does not offer an option to disable debugging in the virtual machine. This can lower the performance considerably, but it is trivial to replace the debugging binary in bin-debug with the optimized one from bin.
