The VMTN Blog posting â€œCoherence? Meet Unityâ€ seems to be the source of it all, which lends a certain air of credibility. The idea was quickly picked up by The Unofficial Apple Weblog (TUAW), CrunchGear, and YouTube, among others.
However, this is an apparent about-face from the position of Fusion developers earlier in the product’s lifecycle, who were not so keen on implementing such a feature in Fusion until â€œthey could do it right.â€ Has that time finally come?
I will say this: if Unity is truly real and coming in a future release of Fusion, and if the features that were demonstrated in the Unity video are real, it completely blows away Coherence.
UPDATE: According to Regis (VMware Fusion lead developer), this is definitely real. I stand corrected!
