Why VMWare Fusion Won't Beat Parallels

  1. Can't find it from vmware.com, let alone searching for it on the site search.  Rather have to Google "vmware fusion" to get to it.
  2. Requires filling out a long annoying form to download.
  3. Said form doesn't show you the latest build version before you fill it out.
  4. If you think to click "release notes" you can view the latest build version.
  5. Release notes don't make it easy to find when it was released.
  6. Community forum, to see what people are saying about future builds and such, requires membership on vmware.com (filling out yet another long form).

I just don't see Mac people putting up with that sort of enterprise IT software mentality!  I'd offer up the thought that OpenID is the Parallels of the identity world, but don't want to overstep my bounds. :P

Let's see how they do once they actually release it ;)

It's a beta. I can imagine them not wanting the non-ubergeeks to play just yet.
