VMware Fusion

Good Day

From CompFusion, the new blog of VMware’s Régis Duchesne (HPReg): Good Day.

Exactly 1 year ago, after having spent 7 years at VMware, I wanted to do something new. My manager was nice enough to let me be the technical lead of the Advanced Project I submitted: porting our hosted virtualization engine to Mac OS.
I cherry picked a surgical team of VMware engineers, some of them
experts with the VMware code base, some of them expert Mac users.

4
months later, we had our first VMware virtual machine running on Mac
OS, with a GTK+ user interface (borrowed from the Workstation product
for Linux) running on top of X window. Management and marketing liked
what they saw, and asked us to productize this. I came up with a
codename for the project: Fusion.
