Quoted from ITWorld

Workstation 6 supports the new Vista OS from Microsoft Corp. as a guest or host OS. It also displays an image on multiple monitors, which is important for users in financial services, computer-aided design and other environments. Workstation 6 also features the previously announced ACE Option Pack, which allows a user to store a virtual machine setup on a portable device, such as a USB drive, to transfer to another computer…

Workstation 6 also features an experimental “record and play” function, which he said records the deployment of a virtual machine and allows a user to rewind to the start of the recording and replay the deployment to see where bugs might have occurred. This would be particularly beneficial in software development because a tester could see where problems developed, Phillips said.

The Workstation 6 for use in a Linux or Windows host OS can be downloaded for US$189, and the ACE Option Pack for $69.
