    They claim that they are working on 3d acceleration support, anyone know when this will be available?

    They are quite good at improving their stuff, so I expect virtualized 3D with quite low frame rates by around Christmas...

    If you're that desperate for games in OSX, maybe try Codeweavers crossover...

    Heres my dilemma: i like to play games like rise of nations( which is pretty old now) in full screen. The osx version sucks. I have boot camp, but that doesnt support my Dell 22" as a primary monitor hooked up to my macbook. so yeah

    btw RON is not supported in crossover

    ohhh really nice.
    unless Parallels team can do it fast, i think i'll switch to vmware just for this.
    3D support > coherence

    I imagine you'll have pure virtualization (hopefully either way) when the VM companies support 3D graphics and dual/quad core procs are on eveyone's machine. Give it a year or two...

    Then the question will be - which hardware environment do you normally work in? A Mac with a virtualized Windows? or a Windows with virtualized Mac?

    VMWare has not publicly released a build of Fusion with 3D support. That video shows an internal beta.
