    so i tried parallels before when it first came out. and i thought it was nice and all.

    but i just got 3.0 or whatever, and man, it is nice. especially with how you can share the folders and they are mirrored or whatever, like you documents, pictures, and music folders.

    i'm very impressed. i guess all of that is just for windows though. i'm running Vista right now. trying it out at least

    i thought i would share my experience

    I prefer Parallels. I just think it interfaces better with the OS.

    what makes you say that?

    sorry, i'm not trying to start a debate between the two. i just felt the need to share my experience, for those that are trying to decide if parallels is any good or not

    I am running Parallels as well. :)
    I think it is a nice idea just to share one's experience about running Virtualization soft instead of provoking another debate about Parallels and Fusion. :eek: Sometimes this really helps to make the right choice when choosing soft that runs Windows on your Mac...
    So, I'm waiting for your report as well! :)

    Parallels vs Fusion has gotten to be like the Mac vs PC debate. In 2008, it is how I should run Windows on my Mac.

    I have both and I can't tell the difference with speed alone just like I can't see the difference between Safari and Firefox. It is all good.
