Vine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
Truth be told, running Windows on my Mac doesn't interest me that much. I spend a fair amount of time testing Linux distributions and have been using Parallels and Virtualbox for this until now.

VMWare Fusion 5 comes with both a DVD and a USB-based installer. As the DVD drive is starting to disappear from Mac hardware, this was a nice touch (if a little necessary).

Installing Ubuntu in VMware is a breeze. The whole process is guided from start to finish. You simply give it a username & password and it takes care of the rest, even installing VMware tools for you. Other distributions don't fare so well. Mint for example requires manual installation of VMware Tools, but there is a comprehensive help document included in the Tools installer to help you get everything up and running.

Performance is good, Flash video plays full-screen without judder on my 2011 iMac, which is more than can be said for Virtualbox and Parallels.

Great product.
