What is VMware Tools?
VMware Tools is a suite of utilities that enhances the performance of the virtual machine’s guest operating system and improves management of the virtual machine. Without VMware Tools installed in your guest operating system, guest performance lacks important functionality. If you do not have VMware Tools installed in your virtual machine, you cannot use the shutdown or restart options. You can use only the Power options. If you want to shut down the guest operating system, shut it down from within the virtual machine console before you power off the virtual machine.
What is Open-VM-Tools?
Open VM Tools is a set of services and modules that enable several features in VMware products for better management and seamless user interactions with guests. It includes kernel modules for enhancing the performance of virtual machines running Linux.
What is Enlightenment (E17) Desktop?
Enlightenment (E17) is the next generation of graphical desktop shell from the Enlightenment project. It is a compositing and stacking window manager for the X Window System. Since version 20, Enlightenment is also a Wayland compositor. Enlightenment includes functions to provide a graphical shell, and it can be used in conjunction with programs written for GNOME or KDE. When used together with the Enlightenment Foundation Libraries (EFL), Enlightenment can refer to an entire desktop environment.
