Yup. It rocks. I'm buying it, I'm so impressed.

VMware works perfectly. It's an excellent package. At work, I have to run
outlook and IE5 the odd time, and it handles them fine - quite nippy too,
as you can download a "VMware video driver", to speed video stuff up. I
don't think you can get a VMware direct X driver, which would be nice, but
we live in hope :)
VMware is your only man, if you are a good puppy and run Win32 stuff...

Dunno does sound work in VMware - I've be surprised if it doesn't - but
download it & try it out...
