VMware updates workstation product

VMware, whose software lets multiple operating systems run simultaneously on a single Intel computer, has released a new version for desktop computers, such as workstations on which software engineers write their programs, the company said Monday. The new VMware Workstation 4 includes several new features, including the ability to take a "snapshot" of a virtual machine, save it, then load it again later.

It's also designed to provide better sound and video support and to make it easier to switch among several virtual machines; and it supports deep-level debugging tools. VMware Workstation 4 works with the latest versions of several operating systems for computers based on Intel or AMD processors, including SuSE Linux 8.1, Red Hat Linux Enterprise Linux AS and the coming Windows Server 2003.
