    I'm just wondering if there have been any news on GPU virtualization from either VMware or Parallels. This is one of the major features I'm waiting for before I buy either of them.

    Last I heard Parallels claimed they would have a beta version out around the year's end, is this still the case?

    I haven't followed this, and I understand if nobody else knows. Just wanted to check in.

    Thanks!

    Yeah, I am kind of waiting on this too. I don't really need it right now, I just want to wait until the next version is released. My biggest worry is that Vista will be in full swing by then and I will have to pay for the super-platinum-edition of vista to run virtualization. I guess I could buy a copy of XP Home now. It should still work on the next edition of Parallels and BootCamp, right?

    I would wait until after vista is ofically released, you will probably get much better deals from retailers wanting to clear out their stock :)
