Learn how to install and properly configure VMware Workstation 12 Pro so that you can then create, configure and properly manage Virtual Machines. Virtual Machines based on Linux or Windows can be used in a wide array of environments, from building a home lab, testing, QA, software development, educational environments or business environments. There is no limit to the use-cases for Virtual Machines. They are an efficient and easy-to-manage medium that can run on one single physical machine.
