VMware Workstation 6

VMware Workstation 6

Popular with professional developers and others looking to test, debug and otherwise support software applications, <a href="http://www.vmware.com/products/desktop/workstation.html">VMWare Workstation</a> is now in its sixth release with a raft of new and enhanced features aimed at further enhancing its appeal to that market. VMware Workstation is popular with developers for several reasons, not least of which is its wide platform support, with implementations available for 32-bit and 64-bit versions of both Windows (desktop or server) and Linux. It can also host a wide range of 32-bit and 64-bit guest operating systems including most versions of Windows and Linux, along with less popular platforms such as Sun Solaris and even, for those who still need it, Novell NetWare.

When is an Ultra Mobile PC not an Ultra Mobile PC? Answer: when it's Sony’s <a href="http://vaio.sony.co.uk/view/ShowProduct.action?product=VGN-UX1XN&site=voe_en_GB_cons&category=VN+UX+Series">VAIO VGN-UX1XN</a>. Microsoft may have coined the term <a href="http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/winfamily/umpc/default.mspx">Ultra-Mobile PC</a> (UMPC for short) and companies like Samsung, ASUS, Gigabyte and Medion are happy to work with it, but Sony, for one, is ploughing an independent furrow. Although the company is pointedly not calling the VAIO VGN-UX1XN an 'official' UMPC, its web site states clearly that the system is a ‘high-end Ultra-Mobile revolutionary concept representing a new generation of devices’. Whatever you want to call it, this is a very small and compact computer running Windows Vista &mdash; but is it any good?
