OT: Parallels or VMWare Fusion?

Hi Matthias,

I've completed a couple of standalones on a Mac, one with Tiger and a couple with SnowLeopard - MacOSX versions, Classic Mac for one of them, and Windows XP versions for all of them. This was a few months back. I was using Fusion 3 something in the beginning and then moved up to 4 with XP and the stand alones work OK, though I had deleted some of the features that the Mac Versions used, and  I haven't redone it yet with Snow Leopard. I was able to run them OK. Some were basically just slide shows, but one was quite a bit more complex. My biggest problems were trying to get sound (music clips) and voices to work on the Windows stand alones. Since that was just frosting on the cake, I ended up getting rid of those features for the Window's versions. I've had a very good experience with Fusion. I never tried Parallels. Most of the programs are 50 or more MBs; mostly pictures with commentary.

As i am using some tools, which are not available for Mac, i need to run a virtual machine also on my mac. On my windows machines i am running several virtual machines on VmWare Workstation and i am really satisfied with it.  So i would prefer VmWare Fusion. especially because i could move my existing virtual machines also to the Mac. But this is not a requirement. Are there any users on the list, which are using one or maybe both of the programs and could tell me, if there are any problems with the programs especially using Revstandalones under virtual Windows machines?
