VMware Virtualization for Mac Beta Released

The new VMware desktop product for the Mac, codenamed Fusion, allows Intel-based Macs to run x86 operating systems, such as Windows, Linux, NetWare and Solaris, in virtual machines at the same time as Mac OS X. It is built on VMware's rock-solid and advanced desktop virtualization platform that is used by over four million users today.

The beta is now freely downloadable. Looks like Parallels is going to have some competition. Eager to see how this pans out, or if Apple builds virtualization in their next-gen OS.

I also wonder if the VMWare images I have built will work as is on my Mac. Can't wait to try it.

Hoping Parallels and Fusion won't somehow conflict whe installed on the same box.
