A Big shout out to VMware

When travelling pack only the essential stuff. Well, I just down graded my MacBook installation from Windows 7 to OS X 10.5 becuase of all the driver troubles but without my development tools I don't dare leave my home.

Not surprisingly, I turned to VMware Fusion to bring the stuff over that I enjoy so much. But what's amazing is that I've set up a brand new VM running Windows 2008 R2 (which is 64-bit) on my 32-bit OS X installation and then installed Visual Studio 2010 in just under 2 hours, and it just works!

I can't possibly imagine my MacBook without VMware Fusion and I'm defintely going to upgrade to the 3.1 release as soon as the trial has played out it's role.
