VMware Fusion 7 Wins Editor’s Choice Award!

Although Christmas doesn’t arrive for another two weeks, the VMware Fusion team received an early holiday delight from PCMag.com – an Editors’ Choice award for VMware Fusion 7!

PCMagEditorsChoiceVMware Fusion has always had a loyal following and the product team has put a lot of effort into making it one of the leading solutions available to serve its customers. We have always believed that the solution uniquely offers an experience that is different than the competition and it is gratifying to see that sentiment echoed by an objective third party review.

VMW-BXSHT-FSN7-WEBPCMag.com praised Fusion’s “rock solid stability” and said, “VMware Fusion is like a well-equipped armored vehicle: it goes anywhere (and) it’s unstoppable…” They also liked the vast array of operating systems Fusion supports and the fact that Fusion creates no visual clutter in OS X.

We can’t think of a better way to sum up the strengths of Fusion 7 than the reviewer’s final words,“…Fusion is the Mac app I prefer when I need to get some more-complicated work done in a Windows app under OS X.”

Many thanks to PCMag.com for taking the time to conduct an in-depth review, and thanks always to VMware Fusion users for your support.

Extend your Windows XP journey with VMware Fusion

After 12 years in the market, Windows XP support ends today, April 8, 2014.

Are you still using Windows XP? Do you need more time?

If you’d like to continue running Windows XP, virtualization is an ideal solution. Virtualization will enable you to continue using Windows XP, but on modern hardware, like the latest Macs.

And, if you’ve been thinking about getting a Mac, or own one already, you can use VMware Fusion 6 Professional to create a Windows XP virtual machine that will run on your Mac. You’ll be able to use your Windows XP applications and access your Windows XP documents and files as you do now, only on a Mac.

Moving Windows XP to your Mac is fast and easy with Fusion Professional’s built-in Migration Assistant, which takes you through the migration process step-by-step in clear, easy-to-follow windows. For a preview of the process, watch the how-to video Migrating a Windows PC to a Mac in the VMware Fusion 6 Professional Learning Center.
