A 64 bit Windows 7 Home Premium VM in VirtualBox with 6GiB RAM assigned looks more like Home Basic (no Aero). Can be seen at the taskbar. If I wanted Home Basic, would have installed it.
Ran across an article that showed how to install the latest VMware Player in Ubuntu 14.04, which Linux Mint 17 & 17.1 is based from, so it would seem that the install should go the same way. What am I doing wrong? Have already downloaded the VMware Player for Linux, as directed on the page.
On the other hand, these may be poorly constructed instructions, that I don't know.
What I do know is that Linux users are using VMware Player in their computers, and I want the same. While VirtualBox is easier, VMware Player has been reported to provide better graphics to guests. In my case, hardware is not a limitation, and I want my VM's to have the look & feel of the native OS.
Thanks in advance for any assistance provided.
