Three days ago a VMware employee answered a user in the VMTN discussion forums mentioning an upcoming RC2 release for Workstation 5.5.
If so it’s obvious the RTM will not be presented at VMworld 2005 as I was guessing. I’m starting to suspect VMware is waiting for Microsoft Vista beta 2, expected for December 7th, to be sure users can install it flawless as guest OS.
Meanwhile there are issues around the highly expected VMware Player. More datails to come.
