Michael,

Some Phoronix readers may have noticed that VMware Fusion 5.0 was recently released, that too will be benchmarked in a future article especially with VMware claiming to have delivered more performance improvements to this compelling but proprietary and non-free virtualization software product.
Double check the EULA before posting Fusion 5 benchmarks. I was under the impression that VMWare host products had a clause preventing unauthorized publication. My Fusion 4 EULA had:

You may use the Software to conduct internal performance testing and benchmarking studies, the results of which you (and not unauthorized third parties) may publish or publicly disseminate; provided that VMware has reviewed and approved of the methodology, assumptions and other parameters of the study. Please contact VMware at benchmark@vmware.comto request such review.
