    Anybody using VMWare Fusion with non-Windows guest OS? Just wondering if you are getting core shutdowns when the guest OS is running.

    I was having core shutdown issues...

    My solution was to search here found some advice on using coolbook to reduce the HEAT and it worked, found a post last week mentioning the Thermal paste issue (just like on the rev A macbooks).

    Just my experience, your milage may differ

    to find the threads just search on my handle.. :)

    I've installed Parallels and it's really good, my Air runs nice and cool. :cool:

    Running VMWare with Ubuntu, Win95, and WinXP. No core shutdowns or heat issues with any of them once vmware tools was installed in the VM.

    The machine does run a little hotter with the VM going, but I expect a little bit of overhead...

    I'm still considering installing coolbook, and fixing up my thermal paste. I am mainly thinking about performance improvements, though. If it helps, great. At worse there would be no change.
