VMware Fusion Goes Beta

tonyl Re:You Are Running VMware Fusion with DEBUG option (153 comments)

So they want to collect data, and if you want to run the beta, that's what you have to put up with. Understandable, but utterly stupid.

The reason it is stupid is that they are coming into a market already dominated by someone else. If they were coming in with a product that out-featured Parallels, having a temporarily crippled beta would be acceptable, but they haven't done that.

I think VMware isn't accustomed to being the underdog. In that position, you need to offer more.

I'm sure VMware will overtake Parallels: they have the resources, the experience and the user base on other platforms. But this is a lousy way to start.
