    I am running a Copy of OS X Lion Client in VMware fusion 4.1.1 I was wondering if QE/CI is possible in a virtualization environment? and if so is either Parallels, or VMware planning on coming out with an update now that it does not violate apples EULA?

    Its not that VMware needs to rework the EULA so that it does not violate apple's EULA but rather will apple change their EULA to allow OSX to be run in a virtualized environment. For the record they have done so for Lion. You can now run OSX 10.7 non server edition under VMware or Parallels.

    yes that was what I was saying. Now that it doesn't violate apple's EULA are they going to come out with QE/CI support in their tools?

    Since apple handles the drivers in OSX, I'm rather doubtful that vmware will spend a lot of time and effort developing the developers to improve the performance of OSX under vmware.
