Software Update: VMware Workstation Pro 16.1.1

VMware has released version 16.1.1 of its virtualization software Workstation Pro. With this program it is possible to create one or more virtual computers on which a large number of different operating systems can be installed. That way they can be used side by side, as opposed to a dual boot setup, which requires choosing one OS or the other. VMware Workstation is available for Windows and Linux, and licenses start at about 220 euros. In version 16.1.1, several security improvements have been made to the VMNet driver.
