Vmware is one of the tools you can use to install an operating system on a operating system. It will run inside a window and perform its task not being aware it is being run in vmware.

You can use such a setup for testing purposes, developing projects etc.

In my case I just wanted to install Linux Mint 17.3 KDE without having to give it a proper physical SSD and that is why I am installing Vmware Workstation 12 on Linux Mint 17.3. In the case of KDE I will start with an ISO. In an other tutorial I wlll start with an USB and install Linux Mint 17.3 Cinnamon.
