Hi. Anybody have any experience running NetBSD or Dfly under VMware? I foun=
d these appliances that I want to run in my office but it says that the "VM=
ware tools" have not been installed on them:

I contacted the author and he claims that Vmware does not officially suppor=
t NetBSD and that's why it doesn't release the "VMware tools" for that OS. =
It only supports Linux and FreeBSD from the open source world. Is that true=
? Is there any performance gain (CPU, I/O) from installing the VMware tools=
 on the guest system? I've heard numerous reports of improved performance b=
ut nothing has been confirmed officially by VMware. Thanx much.
