Gender: Male
I'm a student from New Zealand. Total Apple fan been brought up with them. First computer was a Mac SE at age 4 then at about age 6 with great excitement got a powermac running OS 7 that was cool. Then at age 9 I saved up enough money to buy a grape iMac. I thought it was the most wonderful thing in the world. I got an iMac G5 at age 15 and now at age 18 I have a brand new Macbook Pro. Thats my life in Macs.

Nice one Apple. I'm so glad I didn't have to get this bad boy replaced at a service centre. Thanks for being responsive. Kudos!

I'd basically wanted the orange box since it came out. After humming and haaing about this for months I decided to give it a whirl thinking nah it won't work like it says, there will be a catch. We'll I played the HL2 demo on steam and was fully blown away, everything looked beautifully rendered, I then purchased the orange box off steam and everything worked perfectly and doesn't mean I have to reboot into vista. Sure there is the odd glitch on occasion but it really is amazing how well this works, it's not a gimmick, it's for real.
A great way to get fantastic games that us mac users miss out on.

I'm very very disappointed with this piece of software, It is good when it works but it freezes so frequently it is unbelievable. For example I was burning a spanned backup over 10 dvds, and it froze on the second to last rendering the rest completely unusable.
The number of disks this program has turned into coaster is completely unacceptable, I just wanted to scream when after 6 hours of burning it freezes and wastes MY TIME and MONEY.

This game is simply fantastic, great fun, clever and original (and I feel a bit bad-ass at the same time!)

Awesome game for those who have the urge to cause virtual destruction. And aw man, the upgrades, it certainly has the upgrades!

Thanks Ambrosia for updating to universal binary, I'll be sure to have a crack at it once I'm finished my exams ("sure I have time for just one more high security hack.......").

Well worth a shot!

I gotta hand it to these guys, this is one tight bit of software. Vastly better than Parallels for the following reasons:
Stability is perfect - One of the first time I used Parallels it kernel paniced when I was showing my mates ... awesome.
It's easy to work - A lot of my customers want something that'll just work rather than something which requires a lot of knowledge to use, Fusion allows for this. How many "I can't do this on Fusion" phone calls have I had? None, as opposed to Parallels.
It's faster - Windows and Ubuntu are blazing fast on my Macbook Pro.
The interface is neat and tidy.
The support and features are great (the new features in version 2 look amazing (I wish I had two monitors to try it out on)!)
As a whole the software doesn't feel clunky or bloated like Parallels.

I work in an Apple premium reseller and whilst we sell a boxed version of Parallels and no VMware fusion I'm straight up with the customer and tell them VMware's the one to go for. Hell I'd be hacked off if someone sold be Parallels instead.

Free upgrade to 2.0 is just the icing on the cake, Parallels may I remind people is a PAID upgrade for every major update (eg 2-3).

Respect VMware, I will continue to send my customers your way!

This is a darn fine game, the most addictive puzzle game I have every played and I have tried many.
Once you start playing you can't stop the ball reactions are gorgeous and the physics is fun and not completely realistic. The best kind.

Definitely worth the money I paid ($10).

Absolutely wonderful!
Only thing I can suggest is different weighting for assignment individually.

Ambrosia, I love you dearly, I don't have an iPhone ecause I live overseas but good job sticking it to Apple. I'm a massive Apple geek but his move to pay for ringtones is just stupid. If iPhone comes out here I'll be buying your program straight away.

Brilliant if one knows (kinda) what they are doing, just watch the hacking WEP with KisMac video on youTube if you have any questions.
Oh I kicks I get driving around and seeing all these networks!
KisMac how I adore thee. The only thing I ask is re-injection ability with my D-Link DWL-G122 apart from that it works like a god.
Haven't had any stability issues.

This program is utterly fantastic, perfect for use in lectures, best program to come with my Macbook Pro. This with OmniGraffle make killer programs.
My notes are now killer!
