Way more responsive than Parallels on my MacBook. I like nice with expose as well. I'm taking advantage of the half off purchase soon.

It's still a bit buggy, but I far prefer the "Unity" in Fusion to Parallels's "Coherence" mode. Cmd+Tab works to switch applications, and Expose works properly. Despite being a registered Parallels user, I might switch to Fusion when it hits RTM.

Better, link?

Could the title of this be changed to "VMware Fusion". The name of the application is not "VMware"; that is the name of the company that produces this product. The version, by the way, is 1.0b2; not "beta".

josh: Maybe because Linux support in VMware is far far far better than in Parallels...?

I can't for the life of me figure out why anyone would choose this over Parallels.

I've tried CrossOver, Parallels, and VMware... VMware is by far the easiest to use. After booting the VM, things just work... DHCP, printing, and the applications. I did have some trouble at first, but I found that taking the default memory configuration solved it.
