"Imagine a world in which your applications are no longer dictated by a particular platform. A world where you can run multiple application environments concurrently, on an ordinary personal computer. A world so advanced that each environment is isolated from the others: If a system crashes or an application hangs, other environments are not affected. Envision a world where your entire computing environment is encapsulated and can be moved between computers as easily as copying a file. Now, with VMware¹s revolutionary, patent-pending Virtual Platform technology, this ideal world is a reality."

"In a radical departure from tradition, VMware Virtual Platform provides a "mix and match" capability among hardware, operating systems, and applications. This innovative approach lets individuals and organizations achieve new levels of flexibility, productivity, and performance while maximizing the return on their investment in hardware and software."

"For example, with VMware Virtual Platform, you can take your personal or business applications with you, and run them on the machine of your choice. Or you can run applications from different operating systems concurrently ­ such as Microsoft® Office ­ on your Linux® system. Developers can use a single machine to write and test applications for multiple target environments. And organizations can efficiently deploy new or upgraded versions of operating systems or applications throughout the enterprise, while keeping their current operating system and applications intact. All users can work with confidence because they know any changes they make to a system can be undone with just a click of a mouse button."
