My favorite VMware fling tools

My favorite VMware fling tools

Some tools are included in later version of VMware product after testing and solving potential problems/bugs during "fling phase" 🙂 In this post I will show my favorite fling tools that I often use.

Virtual Tool chest update: Flings and More

So here’s an update on a number of new tools and flings I think you should take a look at.
