how is it running compared to xp and vista?
I wrote a Parallels blog post for Windows 7 RC running within Parallels Desktop 4.0 for Mac. You can find it HERE.
Overall, not too shabby. I really like how smooth it runs, and installation was quick as well. There are a couple screenshots posted there also, if you're interested in seeing it.
I run Windows 7 RC in VMware Fusion 2.0.4 and it runs very smoothly. Much better experience than (the dreaded) Vista which I ran for about 32 minutes in a VM. Almost ready to give up my Windows XP VM for work.... Almost...
It's running fine for me in VMware Fusion. Overall it runs fairly well, with no slowdowns or hiccups. Speed-wise it feels about the same as my Windows XP VM, and faster than any Vista VM I have ever used. There are no question marks in device manager; all hardware was recognized and drivers provided through VMware Tools, although I haven't tested everything to see what actually works and what does not.
The only thing I've found that doesn't work in Fusion (other than Aero, which I expected) is the Windows Media Center. It claims the video driver isn't able to support it, so it doesn't play any of the sample video.
