VMware Fusion 10
Run Windows or another virtual operating system on your Mac

If you’re a PC user but fancy the idea of using a Mac, you can get the best of both worlds through virtualisation. Only a few years ago, when the Mac used to use a PowerPC chip, using Windows on a Mac was unbearable. Now Apple have moved the Mac to the Intel CPU, which is the same hardware technology used by your PC, you can install Windows on your Mac desktop, without losing too much speed when running both operating systems on the same machine.

VMware Fusion for Mac is a superb tool that you can use to run a virtual operating system on your Mac. This includes Windows XP, Vista or even the latest Windows 7. You can also run a Linux-based operating system, such as Ubuntu, which is ideal for testing the new operating system without installing properly, on your hard drive. Indeed, if you have a fast enough Mac with a large amount of system memory, you can use more than one operating system at any one point in time.

Why would you want to use a virtual operating system on your Mac? For various reasons, which may include Windows-only applications you can’t get for your Mac, favourite Windows tools that you can use more productively on your PC and for testing new software without it affecting your computer.

VMware Fusion has a number of superb features which means you are able to share printers across a virtual operating system, quickly and easily share files and, best of all, use your PC in a Unity mode, which means that the PC application opens on your Mac desktop, as if it was a Mac application.

Note that the download here requires you to be an authorised VMware account holder. You will need to login at vmware.com to download.

The latest Fusion 10 is a major upgrade:

- Fusion REST API. A Swagger-based RESTful API enables users to remotely and programmatically manage virtual machines running on VMware Fusion 10 and integrate with other automation tools in a continuous development and testing pipeline.
- Updated Networking Controls. You can now simulate packet loss and latency using software controls on Guest virtual NICs, control NAT port forwarding rules from the UI and rename virtual networks for improved organization.
- Enhanced User Interface. Get more access to information and quicker access to controls with Fusion 10. The more modern look and feel enables you to see IP and MAC address info in the VM Library Window, easily copy and paste and set guest display resolution from the View menu, and leverage added TouchBar support for quick controls at your fingertips.
- And Much More. Fusion 10 is our biggest release to date. We’ve fixed bugs, added support for the latest operating systems, support for Windows 10 VBS features in guests, support for UEFI Secure Boot, added more controls for remote ESXi Hosts and more.

Verdict:

Superb must-have tool for anyone who wants to test and run Windows or another operating system on your Mac

Windows 10 Fall Creators Update build 1709

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows - Fall Creators Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10? The latest release brings back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1607 which is the August 2016 Anniversary Update.
