"VMware, Inc. today announced the release of its latest desktop product, VMware Express for Linux."

"The needs of both distributors and customers motivated the development of the product, which will satisfy Linux users who want to run Microsoft Windows 95 or Windows 98 in order to access the Windows applications they need. VMware Express for Linux is distributed solely through partnerships, and is not available for online sale as a stand-alone product. Partnerships will be announced soon."

"VMware Express for Linux will allow users to run either Microsoft Windows 95 or Windows 98 in a VMware virtual machine on top of a Linux host system. A VMware virtual machine works just like a full PC, with full networking and multimedia support. In addition, users will easily be able to share files between the Linux host system and the Windows virtual machine using the Samba file sharing service that comes preconfigured."
