Whats the difference between the filled in bullets and the hollow bullets.
They are sub-bullets. The hollow bullets refer to Coherence, Parallels Explorer and Parallels Image Tool respectively. It's just clearer punctuation.

after VMWare's IPO, they'll have enough to buy parallels and then we wont have to worry about using one or the other.
And the result, slower product advances. Better hope parallels stays around and separate....competition is a gooood thing in the software industry.

If it were not for Fusion, you really think Parallels would have released this as an update? Bet you it would be in v.4 and you would have had to BUY it...

Hmm, just out of curiosity can I run Boot Camp in paralles or do I need to create an iso?
You can run parallels from your bootcamp partition. This feature first in parallels before it appear in VMware, i find it is rock solid in parallels and quite flaky in VMware but the recent updates to RC1 have helped sort this out.

This feature in Parallels is really good, everything works perfect. It is of good use for me!
