How To Install Linux into VMware Virtual Machine STEP 14 of 106

Here we need to select the type of "Guest Operating System". We say "Guest" because you will invite that virtual machine to run within your native "Host" machine operating system. The VMware Workstation will do all the heavy work for you. All you need to know is that your machine may be running Windows 10 or Linux ( of some variation ) and that is called the "Host" which will allow the "Guest" to operate just as if it were a real computer. This is the very essence of "virtual machine" because we all know that there really is only one real computer at the moment. The VMware Workstation will allow you to create a "virtual machine" as the new "Guest" running within your "Host".

Regardless you need to click on the large button to the right side of "Version:".
