    Greetings,

    Is anyone who has been running the Leopard betas able confirm whether Parallels 3 is stable under the OS? Parallels themselves state that the software will work but I've learnt to take that information with a pinch of salt and therefore asking for anyone with experience.

    Cheers.

    I am certainly keen to have this confirmed as well. I use a MacBook at work with Parallels 3 and Win XP and would like to upgrade this asap, but can't afford to do it if it screws up my Windows VM.

    This story is about a recent Parallels update to support Leopard :)

    Very old article and, honestly, I don't trust Parallels that much on something as major as this. I'm definitely looking for feedback from someone who has used Parallels with one of the recent (i.e. WWDC beta or later) builds of Leopard.

    The fact that the article is old only plays up for Parallels Desktop. And according to the blog entries above it will support Leopard well.
    We'll definitely see it soon, only a little to wait.
    I'd also see some feedback from others, but i believe in Parallels, since there has been no serious letdowns from its side since I started using it (when it was still in betas)...

    If you are truly relying on parallels for your workflow, don't upgrade to Leopard. Ride with Tiger for now, since we know it will be stable, the fact that it is 10.4.10 makes it the most stable version of OS X out there.

    Wait for people's reviews on how Leopard runs on parallels, don't jump ship so quickly if you are doing such important stuff.
