    I want to setup my laptop with VMWare or something similiar so that windows is running virtually, and every boot-up i am running a "fresh" windows install (sorta how most colleges have their systems setup), as well as have the option of booting into Ubuntu or Fedora as a dual boot option. BUT... i have not setup VMWare since WinXP days and they have so many products im not sure which one to go with.. i only see VMWare workstation for $250? that is too expensive. I use graphic heavy applications. Or, is there another option that will work just as good or decent? Thanks

    VMWare Player is the product you are searching for, if you want virtual machines. You can find it here.

    The newer VMware player now allows you to create the actual VM where you couldn't in older versions.
