Agreed - I hate the fact the the VIC only runs on Windows.
There is AFAIK, an experimental GUI from a 3rd-party using Adobe AIR -
but even without trying it (AIR doesn't run on my 64bit desktop
anyway...) I hesitate to call this a "solution"....
VMware is very Windows-centric. They do know that they have a customer-
base that in part absolutely hates this - but from what I read on the
forums, it's not an immediate concern to them.
And above all, the stupid VIC is slow as a snail.
