  • VMware Fusion

    Has anyone heard about VMware Fusion?

    No, not nuclear fusion but VMware Fusion

    This is essentially VMware Workstation for Mac OS X, as I understand it. It is currently in beta.

    This product is going to compete with SWSoft's Parallels Desktop which is also like "VMware Workstation for Mac". Parallels is a great product and it is made by the folks who make Virtuozzo, virtualization sw.

    So what I am wondering, I suppose, is how many of you out there have a Mac as your primary or alternate system? And, if so, would you be interested in using a VMware product to run Windows or other operating systems on that Mac?

    At first glance, I am interested in writing some articles about this product but then I wonder - how many of the Petri forum members actually use a Mac and would even care??

    I will post a poll on this email for easy voting...
