"This tutorial provides step-by-step instructions on how to install VMware Player on an Ubuntu 11.04 or Linux Mint 11 desktop system. With VMware Player you can create and run guest operating systems ("virtual machines") such as Linux, Windows, FreeBSD, etc. on your desktop, i.e., you can run multiple operating systems on the same hardware which saves a lot of money.

"Also, with VMware Player you can let your old Windows desktop (that you previously converted into a VMware virtual machine with VMware Converter, as described in this tutorial, run under your Ubuntu/Linux Mint desktop.
