    I remember reading around xmas that parallels were offering a free upgrade to version2 when you got version 1, anyone know if it is still running? (i cant find it on the website) thanks

    I believe it is - their website mentioned free upgrades somewhere (although this is my interpretation, not that of a lawyer!). The beta's definitely working on my system.

    BTW, version 2 is much better than version 1. And the latest beta is much more reliable than the pre-Christmas build.

    I would have thought they'd have to provide the upgrade to existing customers now they have the additional competition of VMWare.

    :confused:

    The first released version of Parallels was 2.1, so if you buy anything in a box it'll be 2.x, and you can download 2.2 from their site.

    All 2.x upgrades should be free, but 3.0 will not.
