Difference between latest VMware Workstation and VMware Fusion

I noticed that there is a price difference between the two of them and was wondering if there is a certain capabilities not included in Fusion seeing it is cheaper? Also - tried finding something on the VMware site that highlights the differences (aside Mac vs Windows).

Sorry to bring this up again but I have found nothing that highlights the differences.

They are two different products, running on two different host OS's, for two different audiences.  Workstation runs on Windows and Linux hosts, and is designed for power users, with the ability to run many advanced configurations - such as teams, for one example.  Fusion runs on Apple hosts, and is designed more for the casual user who needs to run one or two virtual machines - primarily a Windows machine to run Windows-only software.  I believe it does not have all of the advanced functionality of the Workstation product... it is closer to the Player product, but actually somewhere in-between.
