Waiting for VMWare Mac

I'm looking forward to doing more Tapestry 4 training fairly soon, and some Tapestry 5 training in the medium future. One important part of my arsenal is missing: VMWare for Mac. Four months ago they said "open beta real soon now" (i.e., by the end of the year). I hope I don't have to lug along my old Dell Laptop, just to run my VMWare Ubuntu image!

I've been using VMWare on Ubuntu (for training classes) ever since I talked to you about it at OSCON. I build it before I go, and then install it on all the student's machines. I can't install it on my MBP, but it's worked quite well. Like you, I'd love VMWare for the Mac - but it's not a necessity to run a successful training course. ;-)

What about Parallels Workstation? It's supposed to read VMWare images just fine and I've been running all kinds of goodies on it.

VMWare Fusion has been released in beta.

As far as I have tested, it plays existing images without problems. No data on performance yet.

Don't have to wait for vmware. Parallels is very good

Actually, I do have to wait ... that is, I do need VMWare.

I need a virtualization solution that is cross platform; the image has to run, freely, on available hardware (typically, windows machines) at client sites.
