Need advice: VM Fusion or Parallels for my MacPro to run Qimage for printing?

Hi, I would like to install Win-XP to run a printing application called Qimage and I have been debating between Parallels and VM Fusion workstation.

Why is VM Fusion Workstation a better choice than Parallels?

Anyone here running Qimage under VM Fusion... if so, how well does it work?

Which Fusion and which release do I need?

Printing to an Epson 3800 via USB 2.0

Thanks

I'm planning to set this up for my 7800 on a new Mac Pro. It will probably be the weekend before I have a chance though. I will try to remember to post back here with the results.

For printing via USB, I'd say Fusion. Why? I have several clients who had differing needs of printing via USB. All started with Parallels. All have moved to Fusion because of reliability of the USB support. Parallel's USB support is simply half done. It works sometimes, but not all the time, and definitely not for long periods of time.
