Windows 7 Runs on VMWare

9to5Mac has posted a first look at Windows 7 running successfully on VMWare.

They note that you must do a manual install not an automatic install to see success. Also VMWare Tools installed without issue.

- Total install time on base model 4GB RAM Unibody MacBook while running other programs : - Won't do an upgrade from XP or Vista without SP1
- Idles at 15-30% of 1 CPU
- It runs way faster than Vista - on the level of XP. Seems to be, dare we say...snappier

Why is this news? I have had Windows 7 running on VMWare for weeks. I didn't think it was that big a deal.

I've installed Windows 7 on my Vista PC and on a spare machine I've noticed its notably slower on Vmware and its a shame the area theme is not full functioning on vmware. Great Start microsoft
