    Hi,

    I just need to run a couple of VM on my Mac. These VMs are mostly RedHat and Ubuntu. I also have for testing some XP and Seven.
    What is the best product for me? Fusion 6 or Fusion 6 Pro?

    Thanks for your reply.

    Regards,
    De Giorgi

    Hey there this is kinda of off topic but I was
    wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you
    have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have
    no coding experience so I wanted to get guidance from
    someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

    That is not true, is it?

    Where please is the table that compares “standard” and “professional”?
    VMWare is goin’ down, isn’t it? Is the player free in Fusion 6?
    What a crappy site.

    VMWare profession is people who need “Professional” in the titles of their products and want to donate an extra $60 to VMWare. I also am curious about the answer to the question car town streets asked. Please just look at your own blogs every once and awhile you dolts!
