Hi,

I have a 15-inch rMBP (early 2013) and websites with quality images and photos look amazing : very sharp photos, fonts are not jagged, etc, which is great to look at. I have my screen on "More Space" which equals to 1920x1200.

At the same time, on the same machine, I'm running Windows 7 with VMware Fusion 5 (latest version), also at a resolution of 1920x1200, and the same high-quality website (in the same browser) doesn't look so good : photos are not sharp and fonts are jagged.

How's that possible? VMware screen Driver?

Thanks,
Kris

Have you enabled Retina support in VMWare Fusion 5? It isn't by default. Read more here.
