Never quite sure
Anyone know if it is possibel to run Snow Leopard Server 10.6.8 inside Parallels? I have it working in VMWare Fusion, but my version is getting really old now (Version 8.5.10), and I'm not sure if it will work in Catalina for example.

These flipping subscriptions kill me every time. I don't want a parallels subscription. I get an Adobe subscription. I get cloud storage and all the latest updates. But why parallels? It's just the software. After that, it's all on me so why a subscription!?!?!??!!? argghhh!!!

I hear a lot about Text Expander on the different tech podcasts. I have PDF Expert on my ipad/iphone. Not sure I would need it on the mac. But this deal is tempting.

Can vouch that Windscribe is a great VPN, and the best part about their service is their monthly email newsletters. They have a great sense of humour. Not sure how their service is valued at $200+ dollars unless it's a lifetime subscription though. I usually pay like $10 a year.

Any tricks to getting it installed? I have official 10.6.8 DVD media if needed. Or can it import a VMWare virtual machine?

Parallels can import a VMware virtual machine. And vice versa if you change your mind and want to go back.

Advice: uninstall VMware tools first. Parallels has its own tools which you should then install after the conversion. And of course, if you go back to VMware, uninstall parallels tools first then too.

When you do the conversion, Parallels may incorrectly identify the OS on the guest. Go into the settings/config for the new VM and tell the VM that it’s 10.6.8 Server. Without this it might install the wrong Tools versions or other issues. Same with VMware if you go back too.

When purchased, do you get codes to download through the app store? e.g. Will I be able to download pdf expert through the Mac App store, iOS store, etc?

Well, it's not "just software" like any other product. Software gets updated and those updates cost the developers. I agree to an extent though - more developers could offer a one-off purchase with support for a year.

So which of these are subscriptions and which are one-time purchases?
