    I've been using Boot Camp for about a year and used to use both Fusion and Parallels (which is why I'm using Boot Camp!).

    But I am about to upgrade to a new drive and think I want to ditch Boot Camp -- but only if one of the two OS X options work better than they did.

    So question is, do they? And if so, which is better right now (stability and speed)?

    no they havent eclipsed bootcamp and never will. they have gotten better though

    fusion is the better of the two though imo. they do have some capacity for 3d acceleration

    if you want a free alternative, try virtualbox. works great for my needs
