VMware Fusion

Try as I might, I still rely on some programs that run only under Windows. To handle these I light up VMware Fusion on my Mac and run Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, not to mention Linux etc. I typically prototype my servers on my Mac first, then upload to VMware ESXi via VMware’s vCenter Converter utility. A word of advice: VMware offers a free version of McAfee anti-virus, and you should use it. This version is optimized for the VMware environment. Unlike the regular McAfee version, this version won’t run away with all of your CPU cycles.

Price: $49.99
Developer: VMware
Compatibility: Mac OS X 10.6.7 or later
