A) Does it support wireless internet connectivity?
B) How is file integration?
C) How are mouse gestures? (ie switching out of the virtual PC window)

Thanks.

I'm assuming you mean VMWare Fusion specifically...

If so

A) If you use NAT, it should work... can't comment on any of the other options... haven't tried.
B) Excellent! Works WAY better than parallels (see my thread on Unity :P)
C) if running in a windowed VM (not full screen) the mouse does not get locked in, so you can freely move it to your mac desktop...

Also, you can't buy it yet, its still in a free beta, so try it out! =D

Thanks for the help!!

What's NAT? <_<
I assume I'm running it.

I have cable internet, and am connected through my wireless router.
Thanks! :)

I think NAT is the default option, and basically what it does is piggybacks an existing connection, which would most likely be your airport adapter...

That's a really simple explanation... I am too tired to go into more detail at the moment :/
