    I searched and didn't come up with anything... but I know I probably missed something in my queery. Is there an ongoing thread or other comparison someplace?

    If you use the link in my sig ( Mroogle ) rather than the search function you will get a lot more results here,both have released newer versions, but most people still recommend Fusion

    Sounds like Fusion might be the better choice for me. I kind of impulsively went out and bought MS Vista Ultimate but I'm wondering if Vista was a smart move (I haven't broken the package seal yet) as opposed to XP? When Vista came out, I remember people saying it was a resource hog... just wondered if that's really the case? OTH, I've heard that MS is working hard to make Vista the product they support and has already set a cutoff date for XP support. I would probably use the Vista to run two or three windows-specific programs.

    So if I get the Fusion, am I OK with the Vista?
