Ive been using it for a vmware few days and enjoying.
There are *loads* of reasons that you should at least have an option available (with a warning if you feel necessary) to allow this to happen, as 'improper' as it may.Virtualization still cant replace running a native operating multiple system in every case.VMware Fusion monitors is 80, but its a free upgrade for current users.Thanks for the reply, and your explanation makes perfect sense, but plainly, you are not serving your customers needs with the current design.And mostly, Ive stuck with Parallels.More thoughts once Ive spent more time with it 4 Comments, read more: Macs, Virtualization, VMware Fusion, Windows.Reals RealDVD, thinking that the DVD-ripping functionality would be a good stress testbut it wouldnt even install in Fusion.) So I also use Leopards Boot Camp feature to turn my MacBook Pro into a true, non-virtual PCand I have a Vista desktop, too.Oh fusion yeahwhat do I run within virtualized Windows?For fusion more than two years now, my primary computing platform has been Apples monitors OS X with a virtualized copy of Windows XP and/or Vista running inside.I wanna live with Fusion for a while before I make any attempt to declare a winner vmware in the Mac virtualization race; both it and Parallels are pretty darn good, and the competition between them has unquestionably resulted in two strong products. Both Fusion and Parallels exact a cracked stiff tax in the form of reduced battery life on my MacBook Pro, I find.
You need a copy of Windows fairy XP or tail Vista to para use it (or another of the 90 operating systems it supports, including Linux and Oeopard Server).
Please do so asap, because your product is nearly perfect, but this is a major hinderance!
I also use the Mac Remote Desktop Client to connect to servers at work. .Office 2007, for one thingI version like it much more than the Macs Office 2008.I started running home the first program that could virtualize Windows on a Mac, Parallels Desktop, the moment it became available as a beta.A few major features of the new version: The ability to do multiple snapshots of the state of a virtual machine, and to have Fusion create them automatically at set intervals, so you can jump backwards if something goes wrong; Keyboard mapping so you can.However currently it is impossible for me to be typing an email in the VM, while my secondary monitor is on a different space.Theres no doubt, however, that VMware tried to catch up with Parallels or surpass it in a number of places where the latter product was in the lead until now.I am confident you guys could enable this functionality as an option. .I would never try and drag windows back and forth in this 'bad' configuration mode, but simply being able to select a text field and type is totally and completely necessary, unlocker and not being able to do so is incredibly frustrating.And other applications as I need emits a blessing to be able to run nearly any Windows application without leaving OS X, as any virtualization fan can attest.
One example: I always keep Outlook inside my 2-monitor VM open on one space. .
And there are still apps vmware fusion 4 multiple monitors that run poorly, or not at all.
Frequently I am typing an email on my host VM that needs information from one of these remote sessions. .
