    Whoa. Wasn't expecting VMware Fusion to demolish Parallels like that. Also, where are the VirtualBox numbers? I didn't see them anywhere.

    There are results for Virtualbox as the third link in the Laptop results. I just started messing with VirtualBox yesterday after the latest build came out. But the results for x86 on my Laptop were pretty disappointing. I'll be trying with a x64 image shortly, then those images on the Mac Pros.

    Just added a new VM test on my Mac Pro using a RAID arrary to host the images, by far the fastest disk perf possible. Hopefully I'll get a handful of new results up today.

    Thanks - that's really interesting! Windows 7 looks quite good indeed.
