VMware Fusion brings virtual machines to Mac OS
VMware, Inc. is making its VMware Fusion virtualisation software available now. Based on VMware's desktop virtualization platform, VMware Fusion allows Mac users to simultaneously run Mac OS X, Microsoft Windows and other PC-based applications on a single Mac.

"VMware Fusion was designed for Mac enthusiasts looking for a seamless way to run Windows applications on the Mac," said Dan Chu, vice president of emerging products and markets at VMware. "VMware Fusion combines a very clean and intuitive interface that Mac users expect with the world's most trusted desktop virtualization platform to allow users to run Mac applications seamlessly alongside PC applications on Intel-based Macs."

The plafform delivers an advanced Mac virtualisation solution. The software allows Mac users to take advantage of their hardware's full potential by running both 32- and 64-bit operating systems, leveraging two processor cores at the same time and using a wide variety of USB 2.0 devices. VMware Fusion is also the only Mac virtualization software available today to provide full support for more than 60 operating systems and complete power management capabilities to safeguard virtual machines when laptops are running out of battery.

There have been more than 250,000 downloads of VMware Fusion since the beta became available in December 2006.

VMware Fusion is now available online at VMware, the Apple Store, Amazon.com, Buy.com, Fry's, Microcenter and CompUSA. The software will soon be available at Apple's retail stores and other authorized retailers worldwide. Initial suggested retail price is US$79.99
