Who uses VMware fusion on Mac anyways unless they want Linux virtualisation?

You’ve got to be kidding.

On Intel Mac? Sure.
VMware Has abandoned x86 virtualisation on M1 Mac.
It hasn't "abandoned" anything. They never had x86 emulation for ARM.


What else can it do over Parallel?
For example the Pro version can seamlessly interact with VSphere or ESXi clusters, including VM migration. It also has more advanced virtual network capabilities.

Not really. We're still talking about a virtualization product that won't be running Windows on an M1 Mac. If it has to emulate the CPU that's nothing new. Heck, I had a Windows 98 VM on my PPC powermac like 20 years ago.
You could always give them a call and tell them how to do it properly. I’m sure they’ll be grateful for the advice, being the small start-up that they are.

(Sigh). Again, that was emulation, NOT virtualization. And it ran like an old dog.

You're confusing virtualization with emulation. It's the latter that mimics a different processor architecture, and then you put your OS on top of that.
