I have decided on Fusion 3 and purchased a boxset from a retail store. I have been playing around with it for a while now, am still learning. Obviously with VM I could do all sort of silly things such as
- Install Ubuntu 9.10 64 bit
- Install Vista 32 bit
- Install Windows 7 beta 64 bit (not successful)
- Install Office 2010 public beta (later removed)
I have also experienced serious problem with the working copy of Windows 7 32 bit which I need during the day due the my dumb idea of storing the pst files of outlook on a desktop folder of OS X which is a bad idea. That crashed the OS I need for work which I had to reinstall again.
A feature that I overlooked is the AutoProtect which enables me to roll back to a earlier healthy version of the OS, see below
Apparently this doesn’t consume too much of disk space. I’m now so efficient in reinstalling OS, connecting to the office network, installing printer drivers, mapping network drives …. etc but I don’t really want to do this over and over again.
(Edited: this roll back feature turns out to be a bad idea, it took more than 30 minutes on my MBP and while it’s doing that the guest OS is basically not functional and I can’t even run a broswer on OS X)
