- [Voiceover] Hello and welcome. I'm Doug Winnie and I'm going to walk you through the basics of how to use VMware Fusion 8 to run multiple operating systems on applications on your Mac. In this course, you'll learn how to install Fusion 8 and then, see how you can install on multiple operating systems within virtual machines. You'll learn how to install Windows 10, Windows XP, and Ubuntu, a distribution of Linux, as guest operating systems within your virtual machine using Fusion 8. After installation of the operating system, you'll learn how to manage the settings of your virtual machine.
This will include learning the various network setups you can create, tools that are available to share files between computers, virtual machines, and between the guest and host systems. In addition, you'll learn how to connect your physical hardware, such as USB devices, to your virtual machine. Finally, you will learn how to use snapshots to let you save states of your virtual machine to revert to if things go wrong, or, if you need to restore to a previous version of your machine. VMware Fusion 8 is designed for anyone that needs to run a Windows applications on their Mac, test software on multiple operating systems, let web developers install and maintain all their browsers for testing, IT professionals that need to evaluate software in a safe environment, or for developers that need to create service, test, build, and evaluate software.
