"As a virtual machine, VMware offers many features, notably the ability to run Microsoft Windows applications on a Linux platform at near-native performance. Multiple VMs can run simultaneously, provided you have enough memory. With raw disk access, operating systems on a multi-boot configuration can run without rebooting the system."
