VMWare Fusion

VMWare have released a public beta of their VMWare offering for OS X, VMWare Fusion. It’s not bad at all, but then I’ve not used Parallels yet—it looks to me that VMWare have their work cut out competing with features like coherence in their competitor’s product.

It’s all good stuff for OS X users anyway: my installation of XP Pro runs pretty darn fast in Fusion (a shame you can’t disable the debugging option in this release though), and it’s handy to have Windoze a mere trackpad click away on Kinky (my “Blackbook”).


  1. Ben, are you sure running XP on Kinky doesn't violate mb4bp campaign license agreement? ;-)Vitor Pereira#
