The VMware Fusion team has put together a great “how to” guide for installing Microsoft Windows 7 (beta) on VMware Fusion on Mac. Complete with screenshots and detailed explanations, this resource should have you up and running Windows 7 in no time.
I’m hearing from various people in the trenches that Windows 7 on a VM runs very well, better than Vista, and one report says with as little as 512MB RAM. Sometimes it’s hard to tell if people are more excited about running the new Windows OS as a VM, or the fact that the Windows promise land that Vista never provided may be right around the corner.
If you’ve been struggling with last minute gift ideas for that “special” Mac user in your life (and I really do mean special), here is something that may interest you. The VMware e-store will be selling VMware Fusion at 50% off on Monday.

Update: The promotion has gone live and is available until 12/1 11:59pm Pacific Time.
This evening, VMware launched a campaign that encourages grass roots promotion of VMware products through word of mouth, email, website, and blog widgets. A buyer taking advantage of the promotion receives special discounts on select VMware products. Then, VMware is rewarding its loyal followers with cash, gift cards, or donations to charity for qualifying referrals.
You can find my particular referral widget on the right hand side of this page (look for the VMware logo and a white background. You can’t miss it).
