VMware Fusion 2 Beta

Posted by Michael on May 30, 2008

I’m using now for about a week, even in a productive enviroment.

– memory consumption is quite a bit higher compared to VMware on windows (with v1 too)
– debug is off, but the vm’s can become slow
– Multi monitor is working partially (3rd monitor identfied but blank),
maybe cause I use 2 different grapic cards and 3 monitors with different resolutions

No time yet for testing 3D graphics with some games but will do soon. Overall it’s stable – had never experienced any real problem with beta’s in the past – and I’m looking forward to the final version.

Virtualizing OS X with VMware

An interesting post to read about running an unpatched Darwin 9 system in vmware fusion, saying:

” Obviously this is with the goal of officially supporting the virtualization of OS X which will be coming at some point in the future. As Regis mentions on his website, VMware is not doing a “Hackintosh” but a real installation of OS X from a factory-sealed DVD”.

Read full post here.  The post from Regis you find here
