Absolutely love to see the Unity feature available for all guest OSes, (K,X)Ubuntu especially.
It'd also be nice to see a Unity feature (or whole Fusion product) available for all Host OSes.
OpenGL support a biggy. And of course DX10.
I am a novice at both Mac and Fusion. My wish list is therefore more modest than the others I have read.
1. I have installed Wndows XP in this VM and will not be installing others.
2. I would like that Windows XP operate faster and with less flickering and so on (that last point is cosmetic, I think)
3. I would like to be able to allow another account user on the same machine to use Winows XP as well, without going through all sorts of hoops to achieve this. I have been trying to do this, but even with the instruction I have received, I am not able to do it.
Support for forward/back buttons in VMware Pointing Device.
Puuuuhleeeeze give us a GUI route to this (both on and off):
Customizing the virtual machine's mouse settings for playing games
Most games require some custom mouse settings to work correctly. These settings lock the mouse to the virtual machine when you are running a game. Note: these settings will affect the performance of the mouse and disable the ability to move the mouse between the virtual machine and your Mac. The setting in the user's preference file will also prevent the use of the drag-and-drop feature from all virtual machines to the host machine. Remove the settings to revert back to default behavior.
To customize the virtual machine's mouse settings for playing games, use TextEdit to make the following changes while the virtual machine is powered off:
In the virtual machine directory, add the following line to the end of the virtual machine's configuration (.vmx) file:
vmmouse.present = "FALSE"
In your home directory, add the following line to the end of the file ~/Library/Preferences/VMware Fusion/preferences:
pref.motionUngrab = "FALSE"
These configuration settings do not take effect until you shut down the virtual machine, quit VMware Fusion, and then restart VMware Fusion and the virtual machine.
1) stability and versions without bugs (that is what makes Fusion better than parallels!)
2) Full DirectX 8.1 support (games such as Elder Scrolls: Morrowind, Jade Empire and Battlefield 2 should run !) and DirectX 9.0c support.
3) OpenGL support
DirectX 9 please for me too. Any word on if this is being considered for future releases?

Without this many modern graphics features just won't load. Also means currently with 9.0c support I have to run a Boot Camp version just for 9.0c and a separate Virtual Machine for the supported 8.1. What a waste of disk space.
To quote Clint "Can I just say how fantastic it is that etung and Pat Lee (and I assume other VMware staff) browse these threads and forums? Such fantastic customer support is the primary reason why I switched from Parallels, and this thread is a great example of this."
I would just like to say, Yes! I whole-heartedly agree! I absolutely love VMware's dedication to great customer support and have never been upset after talking with them. Thank you VMware!
And thank you for sharing my feelings Mr. Clint!
