Wine should run fine as it is just a user space process (caveates about
running an XServer on a guest apply, if your display is remote you
should be fine). The only problems you are likely to have with VMWare
is if it requires a kernel module or special access to kernel features /
devices. If it runs as a normal user space process you should be fine.
