VMware may not officially support Debian but several of its
internal developers (including me, though I'm only a part-time
contractor) use it, so VMware actually runs just fine on Debian.
You can even make .deb packages that work perfectly well (at
least the ones I've tried) via `alien --scripts --to-deb'.
