VMware Player, one of the easiest tools that can be used to run multiple operating systems at the same time on a PC, has just reached version 5.0.2.

VMware Player 5.0.2 is able to take advantage of the latest hardware in order to create virtual machines which use 4 virtual processors, 2 TB virtual disks and up to 64 GB of memory per virtual machines.

Highlights of VMware Player 5.0.2:

• When installing VMware Tools in Linux virtual machines, the default screen resolution options have been standardized to 640x480, 800x600, 1024x768, or 1280x800 for the initial login;
• Image copy/paste now correctly function with Solaris 10 and 11 guests;
• The list of available NICs in the Automatic Bridging Settings dialog window is now refreshed without restarting Player;
• When running in a Linux distribution using the GNOME 3 desktop environment, Desktop folders now open as expected;
• Scrolling with a Lenovo ThinkPad UltraNav scroll button no longer requires excessive force.

A complete list of changes and new features can be found in the official announcement.
