    You can do exactly that with two of VMware's other products:

    1. VMware Workstation: VMware Workstation, virtual machine, multiple operating systems, Windows and Linux - VMware

    2. VMware Server: VMware Server, Virtual Server Consolidation, Free Virtualization - VMware

    Hope that helps.

    Have you checked out innotek's VirtualBox?

    It features what innotek call's a «seamless mode», which will give you application
    windows from the guest os directly in your host os without the desktop of the
    guest os.

    I'm running a Windows guest on a Linux host, works nicely for me. The Windows
    taskbar is put on my gnome desktop, so I can launch programs from there.

    AFAIK, the seamless mode is only implemented in the closed-source free-for-
    private-use version available from innoteks website, eg. there is a debian
    package called "virtualbox", they even run a repository for it.

    There's also an open-source version, debian package virtualbox-ose, and I
    think it's available in non-free or contrib sections on debian mirrors.

    cheers, kai
