VMware to demo Fusion beta

VMware today announced that it will demonstrate the public beta of VMware Fusion at Macworld in San Francisco, showcasing its new desktop software that enables Intel Macs to run x86 operating systems such as Microsoft Windows and Linux in virtual machines at the same time as Mac OS X. VMware introduced the software at the World Wide Developers Conference in August of 2006, and released the free public beta in December. Users can create and run a wide variety of 32- and 64-bit x86 operating systems on Mac OS X without rebooting while simultaneously running PC applications next to Mac OS X applications. The virtualization technology utilizes virtual SMP capabilities to gain additional performance improvements, enabling Mac owners with dual-core processors to assign multiple CPUs to a virtual machine to gain additional performance for CPU-intensive workloads. VMware Fusion is expected to ship this summer, with pricing to be announced at that time.
