The reviews are in. VMware Fusion 5 shines.

VMware Fusion 5 and VMware Fusion 5 Professional launched with rave reviews. Macworld, PCMag, MacFormat and many more loved the 70+ new features, including optimization for Mountain Lion, Windows 8 and the latest Macs.

We’re especially pleased with the 3 Editors’ Choice awards from MacWorld UK, MacFormat and PCMag. See for yourself what everyone’s talking about:

PCMag.com (4.5 stars) – Editors’ Choice:

“Highest performance among benchmarked desktop virtualization solutions tested.” 

MacFormat UK (5 stars) – Editors’ Choice:

  1. Happy for you!

    However, I don’t forget Walt Mossberg’s comment some weeks ago: your concurrent application, Parallels 8, remains slightly more fluid that yours, as it has always been.

    This said, I must let you know that they are not strong for support and that their license is valid for one computer only.

    These elements will allow users to make the best choice, hopefully!

  2. They had 5 months to improve graphics support on fusion but only came out with incremental update to 5.0.3 . I have watched fusion vs. parallels video on youtube and I am seriously thinking to upgrade to parallels.
