i know this isn't the official vmware forum but i thought we can discuss these things here too. I have Beta2 running with Vista64 and it seems really sluggish. Running Xp64 on Beta1 was really fast & snappy. Now i doubt Beta2 got worse compared to Beta1 since it seems they made even more improvements. Can it be it's Vista? I didn't install Sp1 yet, is it that maybe? And yes i did install vmware tools. Running it on both, Macbook Pro and Mac Pro with same effects. Any ideas?
