    Build 10130 Linux Host - UNITY mode works (vmware wks rel 11.1)


    Hi there

    FINALLY !!! Unity mode is working with Windows 10 build 10130 and VMware workstation rel 11.1 latest build.

    Unity means that the VM can access menus from your HOST desktop without you switching to the VM itself. In a way rather like XPMode - but infinitely better.

    Ensure also you update / re-install VMware tools as well.

    I haven't tried Unity mode from a Windows HOST but works fine from CENTOS rel 7 (so should work for other common distros such as Ubuntu etc).

    The Unity mode working makes running things like OFFICE on a VM simple for users.

    Cheers

    I've been contemplating the upgrade from create vmware workstation 10 to 11. My reseller quoted me around $130 for the upgrade. Just not sure I want to drop the cash.

    Hi there

    It's got loads of other goodies in it -- Dynamic Memory management itself is worth it alone. Code is more efficient too -- however as W10 is changing quite rapidly I'd wait until W10 RTM if you want to run Windows VM's or even run VMware WKS itslf on a W10 Host.

    I got my upgrade via a corporate licensing deal so it was a no brainer for me.

    Cheers

    I read about a lot of the Haswell performance improvements. Unfortunately, my laptop is an older model with a core i7-3667u installed, so the haswell performance tweaks won't change anything for me.
