Some VMWare Products Are Virtually Free For Home Use – PC Perspective

Isn't Broadcom 100% Terrible?

When Broadcom acquired VMWare, there was concern that it could eliminate many of VMWare's most popular products because Broadcom has similar offerings. Broadcom has sold remote desktop and app virtualization products but Workstation Pro and Fusion Pro are not only staying., they will be free for personal use. Workstation Pro for Windows or Linux and Fusion Pro for iOS will now come in two versions, a “free personal use” and a “paid commercial use” subscription for organizations.

There will be no practical difference between the free and paid versions, except that the watermark on the free version indicates that it is for personal use only. Broadcom is also being unexpectedly generous with these two versions, for now it's up to the user to decide which version to use. The only obvious downside at the moment is the loss of Workstation Player and Fusion Player, which have been deprecated now that the Pro versions can be used for free.
