VMware Fusion Beta 2 rolls out with a bang!

This is a eventually the product that I'd wanna own. I just hope that Apple guys ease up a bit and allow us to also play with OS X on other X86 boxes. I am so dying to build a RAC on the OS X Virtualized Servers. It will help you guys get into the regular x 86 market, you know. Anyways for now, the Mac owners can proudly showcase the Fusion product from VMware.

What's new in beta 2?

Experimental 3D graphics: The rumors are true! You can now play select DirectX 8.1 games in a Windows XP virtual machine.

Rollback: Take a snapshot of your virtual machine configured just the way you like it, so you can quickly roll back to that ideal state whenever you need to, with a single click.

Run Microsoft Vista on your Mac: Want to run Vista on your Mac? Run Vista Business, Enterprise, or Ultimate 32-bit or 64-bit editions side-by-side with Mac OS X.

Improved networking support: Full support for AirPort networking with seamless switching between wired and AirPort/Wi-Fi connections.

Improved ability to add virtual hardware: Add virtual hard drives for more storage capacity, add up to ten virtual network interfaces to support private and public networks, and keep an eye on your laptop's battery level from inside your virtual machines

The rest of the release notes are here.

Get your Fusion Beta2!
