    1 week MBP (13 in, early 2105) user here. My question might be dumb to many of you, but here comes:

    1. I made a new virtual machine in Fusion v7.11 using the recovery partition. I noticed that an app called Ink in System Preference panel. However, I did not see it in the MBP. Both OS show as 10.10.3. What does this mean? If I want to install Ink on MBP, where to get it? (I checked in the App store and did not see it).

    2. If seems that when Fusion virtual machine is running, the bottom of the MBP becomes rather warm, though the fan usually does not kick in. When I quit Fusion, the bottom seems cool down quickly. Is this normal? (I allocate 2 GB RAM to the virutal OS X by the way)

    Inkwell is a built in handwriting recognition app. It only appears if you have a graphics tablet connected.

    Running a virtual machine isn't a light task, so a bit of heat is to be expected. As long as it isn't getting too hot without the fan coming on then there's nothing to worry about.
