VMware heeft de source code van de VMware Tools vrijgegeven aan de open source community.
Hier een quote van de website:
With the Open Virtual Machine Tools project, we are hoping to solve this and other related problems. The tools are currently composed of kernel modules for Linux and user-space programs for all VMware supported Unix-like guest operating systems. They provide several useful functions like:
- File transfer between a host and guest
- Improved memory management and network performance under virtualization
- General mechanisms and protocols for communication between host and guests and from guest to guest
