VMWare Player vs Workstation
There's a question here asking about the same, however, it's answer is outdated and incomplete. I was looking for an answer on the VMWare page, but it contains mostly marketing speech like "Gain an Indispensable Tool". Neither the wiki nor Google helped me. Incidentally, I've found out that (unlike the Player) the Workstation is capable of shrinking the image and making snapshots. What other advantages does it offer?
As I said my question is a sort of duplicate and probably should be merged into the older one. However, this is not something I can do, so I think my question should get a chance to be answered and should be merged later with the old one. Otherwise the information will be missing on this site.
