OS X Lion spotted in the wild!

We have been using OS X Lion since in its early developer preview releases and all of us on the VMware Fusion team are amped about the release and all of the exciting new features that are now available to Mac users.        

We know many of you have been waiting eagerly for OS X Lion and would like to know if VMware Fusion 3 runs on it. You will be pleased to know that in our own experience and those of the thousands in the VMware community, VMware Fusion 3.1.3 currently runs on OS X Lion without any known important issues.

If you’ve “overlooked” the section of our EULA that prohibits the use of VMware Fusion “IN THE OPERATION OF NUCLEAR FACILITIES, AIRCRAFT NAVIGATION…” you should probably give it a bit more time to make sure nothing serious comes up before upgrading to OS X Lion. ;)

One change we’re particularly excited about is Apple allowing OS X Lion to be virtualized on an OS X Lion host. Michael Rose from TUAW sums it up well in his article:

“This is bound to be a big help for developers, IT managers and others who need to keep a known-good test environment or try out new apps in a controlled fashion.”

We’re obviously looking at this ability closely for a future release so stay tuned!
