    I just downloaded the trial version of Parallels Desktop 6 for Mac, the download screen however says "Try Parallels Desktop 7 for Mac", the download however was still 6.012..

    I can't get to the link anymore either, if you try to go to download trial from the Parallels 6 for Mac screen, it just disconnects.

    interesting

    quite interesting. i tried the link on my computer, and it wouldn't load, so im assuming they took it off.
    the funny thing is they are advertising for Parallels 7 , yet it has parallels 6 shown on the box next to the computer xD.
    Oooh Can't wait.. i <3 Parallels more then VMWare [which im trying out right now!]

    Thanks for the info. I recently got my mac and was planning on purchasing parallels. I think it maybe better to hang on for a while... considering that this version will support the new features in Lion.

    The trial download link is disconnecting for me too. Maybe its coming out soon :)

    Weird. I would still download Parallels Desktop 6 to be safe.

    And from my experience Parallels Desktop is definitely still the best, especially with Lion. So impressed with how prepared they were with the Lion release, because I know a lot of other software out there weren't that ready.

    That its still personal preference. Kind of like the Mac vs. PC sort of thing. I like vmware, others like parallels.

    Does VMware support Win98 with sound? I was a bit disappointed with Parallels on this regard.

    I did a windows 7 install (double install for upgrade disk) with bootcamp, and then set up the parrallels system, and I am very impressed.

    I will buy ther version 7. I love their version 6. I'm in the Mac OS using parallels for office (cause 2011 sucks, yes, it does), and i'll do bootcamp if it's time to craft, but having both options available rocks.

    the only thing is you have to talk to microsoft on the phone so they don't think you're running the OS and the Office on two computers. they record the conversation, and then give you the green light, which as far as this attorney is concerned, is good for me.

    Thinking of buying it just so I can print from my VM's again. Not working in Fusion under Lion.

    I was planning to buy Parallels, but I am glad I waited. I think I can buy it now.

    I think Fusion may also be releasing a new version soon since P7 is now out.
