I've found Windows for Workgroups 3.11 is much snappier! :-P

VMWare is claiming Fusion 5 is near native speed and probably puts it on par with Parallels 7 but I'd like to see how 8 performs. The last few Parallels versions have brought good improvements in speed, particularly graphics.

I been playing Half-Life Opposing Force (steam win game) via VMWare Fusion 5 and I must say it feels like its running native.

I will be trying it out on Parallels soon and see how it handles.

Parallels 8 is noticeably faster with Starfleet Command II than Fusion 5.

Parallels has long been faster for gaming.
