+1six of one, half dozen of the other. I voted vmware fusion because i use it and have personally used vmware virtualization solutions for about a decade before macs went intel. That said, i predominantly install and configure parallels these days, as that's the "stock" product, and i find it's equally as robust and feature rich... I like the folder sharing implementation in parallels.
What's interesting, albeit a little more raw, is the free open source virtualbox.
No it isn't. Stop trolling...That's like a robber suing when the owner of the house hes breaking into shoots him
+1 virtualbox is a great alternative, and the constant yearly full price upgrade is a gouging IMHOI use both vmware and parallels but prefer parallels myself. But with Apples penchants for yearly updated OS versions and the following paid updates from vmware and parallels, I think I'll switch to virtualbox or bootcamp moving forward.
