Comment on VMware Fusion

I have licenses for both VMware and Parallels, and compare them head to head with each major release.

Other than a period after VMware 1.0 final was released and Parallels 3 was in beta, Parallels has always been faster to resume and restore, and has a much more polished user experience.

I tried the recent VMware 2.0 beta, and other than the new printer setup tool, it doesn't surpass Parallels in any way I can find. Some comments here about how Vista runs better on VMware, but can't say; Vista is too painful on either product IMHO.

So once again, I'm sticking with Parallels for now. Nice to see the two companies push each other, though!
