What's left to fix for a perfect product

I have been using RC1 exclusively, and these are my findings from day to day work in a corporate environment.

1. Unity problem, appears every day. I have Lotus Notes open, (which by the way still does not produce a dock icon), and then I open Word, or Excel, or Remote Desktop from within the VM. Sometimes one or more program windows freeze, you can't click in them or close them, the only way to un-freeze them is to go to Single Window Mode and back to Unity, or hide and unhide Fusion while in Unity Mode three or four times.

2. Unity could use a little speed-up, although I don't know if that is feasible.

3. Being able to choose in Bridged mode networking, which adapter to use, is still a very important issue that has not been addressed.

4. An extra configuration Window for defragmenting the VM HD would be nice, especially since from time to time a message pops up saying that the VM hard disk is fragmented.

5. In RC1, I dared to use the VT switch, and to my surprise my WindowsXP 32 VM is flying. Maybe an extra configuration window for that would be nice.

Thanks for the praise Smiley Wink

Feels like the Windows and Alt keys are swapped. Messing up my finger memories.

If there's a way in Mac OS X to swap behaviors just for when Fusion's running. That'd be awesome.

mks.keyboard.swapAlt = TRUE

will do this for you in Windowed/Full-Screen modes, and not in Unity mode (because in Unity mode we need to let the Mac OS see the Command key).

In regards to copying the application icon to the doc.... Does this work if the VM partition is a boot camp partition?

1. Don't integrate the two OSes. The purpose of

virtualization is for the two to be SEPARATE!

Parallels makes me insane because of the level of

integration and there is no way to predict what

levels of integration you get with a slider bar. If

you are going to give Integration, turn it all OFF by

default and have CHECKBOXES to enable the integration

that the USER wants. For example, I don't want OS X

to see or have anything to do with Windows other than

maybe sharing a folder between the two. At the same

time, I don't want Windows XP/Vista to know that OS X

is even around. I want them separate. The more

integrated they become, the more of a security risk

is created. At the very least, let us turn it to the

level we want.

Things to Add.

1. Resizing Virtual Disks. I think it needs to be

easy.

Thanks and keep up the good work.

Egonj NAILED this subject.

And please don't forget the multiple snapshots too!
