…I find (VMware) Fusion more considerate to me as a user: it introduces less hassle in my work, stays out of my way when I’m not using it, and is far more cost-effective. It feels, in other words, like a more professional tool. That’s why I prefer it for virtualization.
Joe Kissel, Macworld, Running Windows on a Mac: Why I prefer VMware Fusion, 6/18/14

VMware Fusion…make(s) it easy to run Windows apps on the Mac OS X desktop…the reason it's our Editors' Choice, is that it's less intrusive, less in-your-face, than Parallels…VMware has a long track record of reliability, which Parallels can't match.
