iTALC promotes learning on a classroom network

Overall a fair assessment of Fusion, but I really have a hard time agreeing with your comment about it being "...not cheap...". Sure it's not open source, but once you make the decision to purchase a piece of commercial software (I realise this is a bridge too far for some purists ;-) how you can call $80 for an absolutely stunning piece of engineering that gives you a near-perfect x86 virtual machines "...not cheap..." is way beyond me. Think back to what you had to do 5 years ago if you wanted to experiment with another operating system. For the record I'm a server side developer running Fusion with Win2K, OpenSolaris, and CentOS... it works well for me :-)
