How Totally Freaking Awesome Is VMWare Fusion

I’m not just a fanboy because my most excellent friend P-dizzle earns his daily bread on the hills of Page Mill Road, but because the virtualization software totally mega absolutely freaking rocks.

I bought their latest product, Fusion, yesteday. It’s the virtual machine platform for new Intel Macs. So on this one can run a virtual machine of Windows, and I’m currently typing this in a virtual machine of Ubuntu Linux “Feisty Fawn”.

Real reason is that I needed to figure out some magic associated with mod_rewrite and mod_proxy. For VMWare this is a snap. I created an ubuntu image, installed the necessary apache components and am now figuring out the magic. If I screw up, I roll back to the last known good checkpoint.

I was so impressed I just had to gush a little bit.

Here’s a pic of my desktop. Ubuntu, OSX, and the only thing that Windows is really good for…
