Hey, I just tried this and Windows did not have to re-activate, but there
is still some minor unhappiness which is easily overcome. I can boot
natively and the Apple hardware drivers work in BootCamp, so the machine
runs extremely fast. Then I boot OS X and run Parallels. Everything is
still fine. I shutdown Windows and run VMware Fusion and everything is
still fine. BUT IF I GO BACK TO PARALLELS AFTER FUSION, the Parallels
config files have been corrupted. The easy fix though is to go to the file
menu and choose Remove. Allow it to delete EVERYTHING. Then it walks you
through a fresh setup wizard and you choose BootCamp again. Parallels then
works as expected.

In summary, they can coexist, but VMware Fusion throws a few punches below
the belt (me thinks).
