In my case, workstation is required - not only for actual functionality,
but for simplicity of home network topology and total systems running out
of my closet, etc. I'm trying to decrease both as the years go by...
Further, there are proposed functions of vmware workstation, specifically
the 3d emulation, gaming, etc., that would be very nice to have working.
