VMWare 6 is in Beta

VMWare has long been one of my favorite softwares for several years now.
The ability to use several virtual machines to test and learn new operating systems, softwares and test scenarios – amazing, and cheap!

VMWare v6 is in beta. I have it installed and it does offer some improvements, especially for 64bit and Vista and for Dual Core CPUs (all of you with D620s :)).
But the most interesting addition I can see is the new scripting language they've added. All the machines are now fully scriptable with a C like language. I can think of several such usages we can utilize.

If you wish to learn more: Release Notes or Download.

BEWARE! It uninstalls V5.5 - but does not harm or change the VMs themselves.
