    Hi there.

    I'm trying to figure out whether VMware Fusion or Parallels is better for me.

    The deal breaker is whether or not I can share files easily between my Windows side of the world & the Mac side. I need the Windows OS to open & save files - then I'd like to be able to access those files on the same computer when in Mac land...

    Do both of these let me do this? I believe I read that Parallels does - but can't confirm VMware Fusion.

    Does anyone like one over the other for this specific function?

    i think in Parallels you can set Windows to set your home folder or any other folder to be seen as a Network drive. in Fusion you can just drag a file into OS X (while Fusion is not in full screen mode of course).
