Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Works with Vagrant
Works with Vagrant, an awesome tool for managing and deploying virtual machine images.
There is very little to no downtime of the Virtual desktops that are hosted in a datacenter.
Pro Can do snapshots
Workstation is capable of taking whole-system snapshots and writing them to a backing file.
Pro Windows / Linux host
Can be installed on Windows and Linux systems.
Con No snapshotting support in the free version
Con Pro version is overpriced
The pro version which has snapshot support is ridiculously overpriced. What's worse, major releases require a brand new license, but generally don't add much more functionality.
Con Horrible user interface
Too often you get "vm is used by another user" or "can't revert to snapshot" for whatever reasons without simple solutions. In most cases, it just throws knowledge base links to you. Not even clickable. Way overpriced.
