Parallels or VMWare Fusion?

Filed under: Main — Ryan Jones @ 11:50 am

I’m thinking about purchasing a Mac this Friday, and I’ll still need some windows support on it so that I can run some of my developer apps (ok ok, starcraft and counterstrike)

Anyway.. what’s better? VMware fusion or parallels, and why?


  1. I may be a little biased, but I prefer VMware Fusion for its rock-solid stability, speed, and how it doesn’t bog down the Mac.

  2. Hey Ben. Thanks for stopping by to comment. Appreciate the advice, although I”ll have to take it with a grain of salt given the @vmware.com email address of yours 🙂

    Funny story, I asked my friend John (a mac user when we were in college) which he preferred and he replied with “well, since I work for vmware, i use it a lot at work”

    so far I’m 2/2 asking mac users and finding out they work for vmware.

  3. Why don’t you first try the trials they offer and choose what you like?
    Here in Germany there are some Mac/Parallels and Leopard/Parallels bundles, some even including a Windows license.
