For my own notes...

/sys/devices/virtual/dmi/id/sys_vendor looks like the right place to check :-)

SELECT str_value, key FROM device_property WHERE device_id IN (SELECT id from device where udi = '/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/computer') AND str_value LIKE 'VMware%' AND key = 'system.hardware.vendor';

Another for my notes :-)

This was verified by using vmware with the Natty and Maverick packages before they were submitted for this SRU, and I now verified that the same 6 lines of code are in the current proposed packages for Natty and Maverick. Please consider verified.
