. Workstation"> At $79.99, Fusion costs about $100 less than VMwares Windows and Linux-supporting Workstation product, and while Fusion features a few Windows integration pieces that Workstation lacks, there are several very useful Workstation tools that Fusion users must do without. For instance, Im accustomed to taking screen shots and captures of running VMs using Workstation, and Fusion offers neither of these options. Whats more, while I was able to use Fusion to take snapshots of my VMs and later revert back to those snapshots, Fusion limited me to one snapshot at a time.
