Freshly toasted VMware Fusion 3 goodness

Software

VMware Fusion

For all of you operating system enthusiasts, VMware Fusion 3.0 was just released for the Mac.

I bought a licence for Fusion 1.0 as soon as it came out in 2007 (Just bought VMWare Fusion) because at the time I was testing various different flavours of BSD and the later builds of Parallels Desktop weren't playing nicely with them. By contrast, despite being heavily advertised as a way to run Windows, Fusion also had additions for Linux, FreeBSD and Solaris.

Given I got Fusion 2.0 as a free upgrade, being told I'd have to shell out AU$49.00 for 3.0 was a bit of a kick in the stomach, but if after using the trial for 30 days the performance is noticeably better I'll upgrade.
