For the past couple years I've been running Parallels or VMWare Fusion on my MBP so I can run MS Outlook. I always ran in window mode which was, well kind of ugly. Yesterday I stumbled on a youtube video demonstrating Coherence mode and gave it a try. Wow, no looking back here. It blends the two operating systems applications on the Mac desktop very well. I'm posting this here in hopes of others seeing it and giving it a try if they haven't. For those wondering why I run Windows Outlook instead of the Mac version. I sync my Outlook contacts with Google contacts using Soocial and Outlook calendar with Google calendar with Google Sync. Neither work with the Mac version.
