Parallels Desktop 7 Vs. VMware Fusion 4: Who Wins?
“We stripped the hype wrappers off of the new Parallels Desktop 7 and VMWare Fusion 4 to see who’s the baddest, and who’s just bad.
Shortly after we started reviewing Parallels Desktop 7, VMware released a major update to its rival consumer-oriented virtualization app VMware Fusion, now at version 4.
VMware’s feature updates sounded familiar—3D performance updates, Lion-specific interface enhancements, and OS X 10.7 virtualization support—so we decided to throw both programs into one review.
Differences are covered, and where there’s a directly comparable result between the two apps, I’ve awarded a winner for that category.
For the sake of consistency, I’ll cover Parallels first and follow up with VMware Fusion’s results.”
