    Visual Studio 2010 on MacOS X

    I've been watching the MS Tech Ed North America sessions on channel9 and I came across a video that seems to show a version of Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 running inside MacOS X (Not in a virtual machine). It turns out this is VMWare Fusion 3. I am impressed at the level of integration with the Mac experience.

    Video Link

    Look around 11:30. Notice the Mac OS menu bar clearly says "Microsoft Visual Studio 2010" as the running application. There's even a Visual Studio icon on the dock.

    In VMWare, the technology is called Unity. It allows seamless integration between applications in the VM with the host machine.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.
