VMware has released a second beta of its Fusion 2 virtualization software, which, like Parallels' Desktop for Mac, lets Mac users simultaneously run other operating systems, including Windows and Linux.Fusion 2 Public Beta 2 improves Mac-Windows integration with Unity 2.0, enabling users to launch Mac files with Windows applications; set Web, e-mail and other links to launch in either the Mac or Windows browser and e-mail clients; and mirror contents of the Mac desktop, documents, music and picture folders to Windows. The upgraded software also offers new ways for protecting virtual machines with multiple image snapshots, allowing for rollback should a problem occur.
