[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VMware VMware] kicked off virtualization on x86 hardware in the late 1990s, and was later acquired by [http://www.emc.com/news/emc_releases/showRelease.jsp?id=2025&l=en&c=US EMC]. Although VMware products are capable of using [http://www.virtualizationsoftwares.com virtualization] [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X86_virtualization hardware extensions], this functionality is off by default because for normal workloads, it's actually [http://www.vmware.com/pdf/asplos235_adams.pdf slower] for the current generation of hardware extensions.

Fusion uses the same disk format as other VMware products, so you can move virtual machines between them. Fusion uses a native Cocoa UI. You can download hundreds of [http://www.vmware.com/vmtn/appliances/ free preconfigured virtual machines] for use with VMware products (in some cases they may require minor tweaking to work).

Fusion is still in beta, the final version will be [http://www.vmware.com/products/beta/fusion/faqs.html available in Summer 2007].

Normally, guests can't tell they're in a virtualized environment. Better performance can be obtained by bending this restriction a little, such as by installing guest tools. Some modern operating systems such as Ubuntu 7.04 go even further, with the kernel itself being virtualization-aware. To enable this in Fusion, add <code>vmi.present = "TRUE"</code> to the virtual machine's vmx file. <br>

To check if VMI is enabled you can run <code>#grep VMI /boot/config-<kernel version></code>. This feature was added to the kernel in version 2.6.22.
