VMware offers three hypervisors that run on top of your existing operating system. Do you know the differences between them?

As most administrators know, a type-2 hypervisor runs on top of the operating system, just like any other computer program. But not all desktop hypervisors are created equal.

There must be an error on this quiz because it took me to someone else's answers. It never actually let me take the quiz. Just opened up to this page. Might want to check the code. :/
