Just wondering, which is better out of VMware and Parralells for running Windows??
I run Vista 64 bit and Parallels won't do that. I really like VMware's user interface (though I've never tried Parallel's).
Both have their pros and cons.
Give both a try, for free, to see which is best for you.
I have both and use on different computers. Overall, I prefer Parallels, but VMWare is good too.
VMware Fusion - hands down.
another vote for fusion. parallels was just too slow for me.
i prefer VMWare Fusion.
Right now I am running the new Beta with XP Pro SP3 and Love every second of my Windows expiarace
I prefer VMware, its easier to use and I found that running XP was faster in VMware than paralells. Plus version 2 of fusion has a lot of new features which are very nice, such as dual screen support.
Vmware fusion it is as close to boot camp as it is going to get
Parallels's way better. I virtualize my Boot Camp and got simply the best settings possible
I have both too. Personally I like VMware much better. I think that it's way less buggy than Parallels.
However as somebody already suggested, why don't you download both products and their two week free trial period and personally see which product that YOU like the most.
Parallels for me.
not tried parralells but have VMWARE and am happy with it.
Might try something else at a later date
Another vote for Fusion.
I tried Parallels first at it too buggy for me.
Another vote for VMWARE, never tried Parallels, read all the blogs first then never needed to switch, even runs my CAD software.
