I use qemu, with the following (maybe redundant) switches:
/usr/bin/qemu-system-x86_64 \
-monitor stdio \
-smp 4 \
-cpu Nehalem \
-soundhw ac97 \
-enable-kvm \
-m 4099 \
-drive file=/mnt/virtualMachines/qemu/fedora.qcow2,cache=writeback \
-cdrom /mnt/virtualMachines/Fedora-20-x86_64-netinst.iso \
-boot order=c,once=d,menu=on \
-net nic,vlan=0,model=e1000 -net user,vlan=0 \
-vga std \
-name "Fedora 20" $*

This is for fedora. Change the distro to your liking and use the 
downloaded iso for option "-cdrom".

The file /mnt/virtualMachines/qemu/fedora.qcow2 is created with:
qemu-img create -f qcow2 /mnt/virtualMachines/qemu/fedora.qcow2 50G

50G is the size in bytes. You can also reuse your VMware disk, I think 
qemu is able to understand their format.
