VMWare Fusion vs Parallels on OSX with Ubuntu
I spend a few hours this morning playing with Parallels and VMWare Fusion on OS X running Ubuntu.
I’m sick Spaces / virtual desktops in OS X being slow. It’s hurting my work now as I jump between desktops. I’m probably going to go back to a single desktop for OS X for a while and use it as a secondary machine.
Ubuntu/Linux seems like the ideal system as it’s more native for Emacs/Unix development.
Long story short, running Ubuntu in a virtual environment on OS X won’t really work. The is just far too much lag between desktop switches.
Of course the only option after this is dedicated hardware… though it would be nice to play with an Ubuntu build for a few hours first before throwing down the cash for hardware for a new OS.
