Just a quick screenie of VMWare running Windows vista, inside a virtual machine. I installed Vista in a separate partition with the help of an OSX app called Bootcamp. VMWare can pick up that install and run it inside OSX. I don’t think Parallels can do the same.
More later on how it all runs but so far so good. I had trouble getting VMWare using my net connection but that’s all resolved now. Parallels worked with it right out of the box. I’m leaning toward the VMWare install for only one reason… it doesnt capture the mouse completely. ie; I dont need to make additional keypresses to get the mouse pointer back to OSX, which I do for Parallels.
Its all good.
