I have decieded to convert my Windows 7 laptop to Ubuntu. I virtualized the Windows 7 install and I thought I read that there is a way to launch the apps that are in my Windows 7 VHD inside Ubuntu using VMware in some way. Am I correct or do I just have to run my old Windows 7 as a VM through VirtualBox/VMware?
The best and most popular Windows emulator is Wine. As far as i know, VMware doesn't have a linux version. Here's their guide to installing it winhq tutorial
