December 26th, 2006 No comments

Ho ho ho … Look at those gifts Santa left us under the Christmas tree.

VMWare Fusion Beta: Download here

So VMWare released a beta to the public but even if you had the private
version, you should grab this public release, as its a completely new build!

Parallels New Beta 2: Download here

The cool stuff about this update are:

– USB 2.0 support
– Now you can burn CDs and DVDs from the virtual machine.
– Improved coherence mode
– Better Boot camp support!
– NTFS partition supported now!
– No Windows re-activation each time you switch between Boot Camp and Parallels

And many more…!

The boot camp feature is still grayed out on OSX86.
Still need to find a workaround for those GUID partitions required.
