Cons

VMware Fusion

  • With OSX - 10.14.1 and the latest version of Fusion - 11.0.2 the user interface has taken a step back IMHO.
  • I would like to see price decrease.
  • Better remote host connection capabilities - remote server connections are available but connections are spotty.

For Apple workstations VMware Fusion is the virtualization software to use. No other application (free or paid) can do what Fusion can. The features and constant updates make Fusion an application that cant be beat.

As I have said 3-4 times in this review, VMware fusion is the best application for system vitalization on Apple Workstations. I have tried all the others and you get what you pay for in the cases of free applications. Even when tested against paid options, Fusion is the best for me and my team.
