xubuntu 12.x vmware player 3.x and virtualbox 4.1

vmware player 3.x just does not work with a linux 3.2 kernel (such as that used by xubuntu 12.x) so try virtualbox 4.1 instead

# aptitude install virtualbox

VMware Server & VMware Player combo

VMware Server and VMware Player are a great combination.

I've just built a VM on a Server host copied it to a Player host and just used VMware tools to shrink the guest VMDK from 3.2G to 1.4G ! Did Player always do this ?
