    Hello!

    I am new to mac and on Monday I will have my very first MBA :D
    Now, on my other PC I have VMWare Workstation, I use this mainly for my "Work" machine and for occasionally playing with new flavours of linux.

    I like this setup as it keeps it all separate however I am under the conclusion that VM Fusion works differently? Can anyone help explain the pros and cons of Fusion, I have used VMware for years so I would feel more comfortable sticking with them however If there is something better then please do let me know :)
    Cost isn't an issue as it is all claimed back on expenses :)


    Thanks

    Why have you decided that Fusion "works differently"? It doesn't.

    Here is a link to a comparison of the two. Good read and good comparison.

    VMware Fusion doesn't work differently from the PC version, however it does look different. Any VM that you have on your current work station should come over without issues.
