VMware Workstation 6 makes it simple to create and run multiple virtual machines on your desktop or laptop computer. You can convert an existing physical PC into a VMware virtual machine, or create a new virtual machine from scratch. Each virtual machine represents a complete PC, including the processor, memory, network connections and peripheral ports. VMware Workstation lets you use your virtual machines to run Windows, Linux and a host of other operating systems side-by-side on the same computer. You can switch between operating systems instantly with a click of a mouse, share files between virtual machines with drag-and-drop functionality and access all the peripheral devices you rely on.

Resuming VMs has always been slow for me (compared to the time it takes to suspend) so I usually use the guest OS's "Hibernate" feature instead of VMware's suspend feature if it is available.

This is good and all for a new release, but When will us VMware Workstation or VMware Player/Server Users get Accelerated Direct 3d Support through the graphics card like Apple users are with VMware Fusion?

Not all of us want to just use windows all the time. I like to use different Operating Systems such as a mixture of Linux and Windows, and I'd like the ability to be able to play some or most of my games while I'm using Linux.

Accelerated Direct3D support has been available since VMware Workstation 5.x. You have to manually enable it in the .vmx file.

Put this line in the .vmx file for your virtual machine:
mks.enable3d = TRUE

And add/change this line to change the amount of video memory for the VM (this one is 32 MB):
svga.vramSize = "33554432"

what would be the value for 128mb?
