I dont think one would need to go to all the trouble of installing a
full Linux/VMware on Winderz.

VMware's engine is not free. It's designed to run just enough stuff to
keep the desired application going and so the footprint is very small.

I'll be doing some paid VMware work here shortly. Maybe I'll give it a
try when the project is over before I have to rebuild the host machine.
