  Old  {Your Thoughts} VM Ware vs. Parallels

Dear all,

Recently, for Christmas, I received a very nice MacBook Pro. Now, this is my first Mac: I had been brought up in Windows and never really looked into buying a Mac before I was asked what I wanted for Christmas.

So, now I have it, and I absolutely love it. But I have a question, which virtualisation software do you prefer? At the moment I have VMWare Fusion, which is great, but there is, of course, Parallels, which seem to offer more or less the same thing.

I also have a small bootcamp partition: I do not need to run games and such while using other mac programs.. (and neither support full HD Games such as CoD..).

Leaving Bootcamp aside, what program do you prefer? If you could say why that would be great, too.

Thanks,

Gareth

I've always preferred parallels as it's easier to use.

Yeah, it just looks more user friendly. They are both great applications though.

I have to agree with Sam. So much easier to use.

I've only used parallels and would say it's defiantly a nice piece of software, however I am considering checking out VMWare as I have heard some very good things about it.

VMware because you can use it for emulating a lot of things such as linux
