Deploying Multiseat with VMware Player

A multiseat, multi-station or multiterminal configuration is a single computer which supports multiple independent users at the same time. In modern usage the terms refer to multiple users using one personal computer, each with their own console, consisting of a keyboard a mouse, a monitor, and possibly headphones.
VMware Player
VMware player : Pear Linux is running in Virtual Machine

VMware Player is a freeware virtualization software package from VMware, Inc. VMware Player can run existing virtual appliances and create its own virtual machines (which require a operating system to be installed to be functional). VMware Player is available for personal non-commercial use, or for distribution or other use by written agreement. No support is provided by VMWare, but there is an active community website for discussing and resolving issues. VMware claims the Player offers better graphics, faster performance, and tighter integration for running Windows XP under Windows Vista or Windows 7 than Microsoft’s Windows XP Mode running on Windows Virtual PC, which is free of charge for all purposes.
