VMware Fusion 7.1.0 Build 2314774
Enables you to seamlessly run Windows, Solaris, Linux and Netware operating systems on top of Apple's OS X and your Mac's hardware
Several popular solutions to run Windows on a Mac exist, such as Apple's Boot Camp partition, and the virtual machine launchers VirtualBox, VMWare Fusion or Parallels Desktop.
VMWare Fusion is a commercial and affordable software application that enables you to seamlessly run Windows operating systems (from XP and up) on top of your Mac's hardware resources.
The VMWare Fusion app is easy-to-install and you will be able to get your Windows up and running in a snap. Fusion is designed for both casual users and professionals who want a fast, simple and reliable virtual machine alternative.
Moreover, VMWare Fusion offers the possibility to run Windows in a separate window, but you can also run Windows in the full screen view that displays only the Windows desktop.
What's more, you can also launch Windows apps right from your Dock, without seeing Microsoft's environment. This is made possible thanks to the Unity mode view, which provides a fully integrated experience. You'll be able interact with Windows applications like Mac apps: view them in Expose, in the Launchpad or Mission Control.
Another worth mentioning advantage of using VMWare Fusion is that you can connect Windows-only devices to your Mac and use them as though you were on your PC.
The application is intended to complement Apple's Boot Camp solution by eliminating the need to reboot your Mac whenever you want to access Windows. With Fusion, you can use both at the same time.
The VMware Compatibility Guide site gives you quick access to the most recent list of guest OSs systems that VMware Fusion supports. Furthermore, in-depth instructions on how to install the most common guest operating systems, can be found on the VMware Guest Operating System Installation Guide.
All things considered, VMWare Fusion offers a streamlined virtual machine solution for running Windows on your Mac in no time.
