Parallels or Fusion?

I get asked about virtualisation on MacOS a lot. Let's look at the two leading contenders here.

Virtualisation on MacOS is astonishingly capable. Before I get text-abuse, I'm fully aware that you can virtualise on Windows too - HyperV, VMWare Workstation etc. Can you run Final Cut Pro though…? Legally…? Nope. Anyway, I digress.

I tend to use Parallels Desktop for my client-side virtualisation, and VMWare Fusion for my server stuff - but what should you use? Assuming we're just looking at client-side virtualisation, then this video may help.
