- [Voiceover] Before we get started with Workstation Pro, let's cover a few things you should know already. First, I'm going to assume that you're familiar with the Windows Operating System, and understand the basic components of a computer, such as processors, memory, storage, and devices, such as USB. You should also be familiar with the basics of networking, with terms such as Ethernet and routers.
