This is a good news.
Any "discount code" available for the beta testers?
I don't see a trial license key available for Fusion 7 Pro anywhere on the site. Where can I get a trial license key?
I just downloaded the fresh Fusion7 PRO trial, but can't run it - it says 'Evaluation period expired.
- It was my first download of Fusion7 pro
It replaced my Fusion6 fully licensed version - now I'm hosed...
I was in the same situation... good thing I have my Fusion 6 image and license backed up so I reinstalled it.
This is typical VMware... never get things right the first time.
It really should not have been this difficult to do a trial...
It's a shame, that VMWare doesn't get these things sorted out...
Did you compare Fusion 6 to Fusion 7? I don't see big differences... (which leaves me unsure, to spend another 60$ after 5 months of Fusion 6)
I just upgrade from Fusion 6 Pro to 7 Pro and I see a good increase in interface speed in Yosemite beta 2, not as speedy as i which but better than with Fusion 6 Pro. I have a MacBook Pro 15 2012. In Fusion 7 Pro for my Yosemite VM I upgrade to (now available) OSX 10.10, hardware to version 11 and the vmtools. Still seem slow to boot but interface is definetly faster.
Interface is faster, but being able to access my VMs on ESXi alone is worth upgrading to Fusion 7 Professional.
i do like vmWare Fusion...
But just yesterday a colleague of mine argued that VirtualBox would perform better ? what are you saying ???
But like other folks here in the forum i don't know if i want to upgrade and pay 60$ after 5 / 6 months of Fusion 6 !!
Come on Vmware how about one of those nice 35% coupons ...in my life time as a i't happend to me once
So i'm hoping for a second time in my life time hahahaha
i'm thinking of skiping this release..paying €60 every half year is not worth it i think..
i Do appreciate the development of Vmware..but in my humble opinion and use case ..
I'm ok with version 6 for now..
As a Linix admin/student i have two major needs concerning virtualisation..
- do quick test , nothing major little things with web servers or mail servers and so on.. (runs ok under V6 and even VirtualBox)
- do major clustering tests Multi virtual systems and so on..
So if Vmware doesn't provide us long time users with a nice coupon every now and then ;-)
i'l guess i have to investigate a second option for my more complex needs..
One could buy a 512Gb SSD "M100" and just dual /tripple boot for the more heavy use cases..
The M100 costs €180 ..having done two upgrades of Vmware Fusion Pro and i'm almost there..
Once in my second environment i could use Linux Virtualization this also helps in furthering my knowledge of other Virt software..
Also taking my Macbook all over the place and starting up Vmware Fusion is a Promo in it self hahaha !!!
i don't know how manny both vmware fusion after seeing what if being doing with it... hahahha
Take care all..
The user interface is dramatically faster than the July 2014 Technology Preview. It also seemed to give me all the evaluation time I had left on the technology preview instead of just 30 days.
