VMware Fusion and Parallels 3.0

I've been running Parallels 3.0 on my Mac Mini with OS X Leopard for a few months. When I initially installed the program I was looking for a way to integrate Windows and Leopard and Parallels had a feature called "Convergence" that allowed you to run Windows over Leopard. It looked like the perfect fit.

Since my initial installation, I've crashed the program 5 times, it runs slowly (which I anticipated) and I've had trouble installing MP3 conversion software. I think it's time to tryout VMware Fusion. I really like VMware's software for Windows and the latest version has the "Unity" view which is like "Convergence" except it doesn't have a windows start bar, instead it integrates everything into the dock.

Now that's what I'm talking about!
