Just my 2 cents: I work with VMWare Workstation (currently 8.0.6) since
ages on CentOS installed on Dell Latitude series laptops (E6530, E6500,
D810, for work purposes). Some versions needed a vmware-any-any patch to
install, some are fine out of the box. With CentOS6, with the latest VM
WS version and the E6530 I only faced a keyboard configuration issue,
no solution but workarounds that make things OK.
