Along with a polished interface, Desktop virtualization users get support for their USB 2.0 devices, copy-pasting text and files with guest OSes, and more. Developers can test their apps in the VMs from their IDEs and can also record and analyze a VM's characteristics to understand why an app crashed, or run the VM in the background using inbuilt VNC capability. And once the experimental features, like Direct3D, get into the mainstream version, it'll challenge specialized apps like Cedega. As per this review Workstation 6.0 easily outshines competition.
