I'm sure this is an old topic, but I have some questions that may not have been discussed. I'm an IT engineer, so I can read the specs for myself, and could make a decision based on specs and features. But I need some real-world feedback. I have used VMware products for many years. So, VMware already has an edge it than I have templates for all the OS's I have to support. Fine, almost seems a no-brainer, but... VMware Fusion just "feels" different than it's Windows products. Before I try to justify Parallels, and all of the work to make all new template images, I was wondering if anyone has used both enough to know: 1) Which product handles host memory and CPU best? 2) If you setup identical guest VM's in both, with identical RAM allocated, which guest VM will run better? [No gaming]. 3) Does either product have rumored features in the works that are sure to make it beat the other? How to decide... Any feedback would help a ton!
