Vmware Workstation 7 Technical Preview

Our favourite website *wzor has a Vmware Workstation 7 Technical Preview for us to try out.

New Features:
- Windows 7 support (as a Host and Guest OS)
- New WDDM Graphics driver for Windows 7 guests
- OpenGL and Shader Model 3.0 for Windows XP and Vista guests
- Download VMware vSphere 4 and install ESX as a guest OS to try out the latest features.
- Dynamically Download the latest VMware Tools package only when you need it.
- Configure your VMs to use Multi-core and 4-way CPUs.
- Print from your VM without installing printer drivers. Virtual Printing courtesy of our friends at ThinPrint.
- Automatically create snapshots on scheduled intervals with AutoProtect.
- Secure your Virtual Machines with 128-bit encryption.
- ALSA Sound support on Linux hosts enables multiple VMs to play "music" concurrently.
- Instantly pause a VM to free up system resources or dedicate horsepower to other running VMs.
- The highly acclaimed Linux Virtual Network Editor user inte***ce has been implemented for Windows users.



Thanks to wzor.

Running 7.0.0 build-197124 on Windows 7 Ultimate RC x64 and RTM x64.

It runs great on both machines and didn't break any VM I had. Also the two previous beta worked just as well.

It's always faster to test yourself

Probably not. I haven't seen any beta invites and the development of VMware Server is quite slow anyways.
