    I have been running Vista in Parallels 5 on my rev B 1.86 MBA SSD.
    Now I see version 6 is out and what is the opinion about the speed increase? Any better?

    Btw, I still run Leopard 10.5 on my MBA.

    Is there a reason you keep on 10.5? I would think that the MBA I. Particular might benefit from all the streamlining that went into 10.6.

    Can't answer the Parallels question as I am (mainly) a VMWare user.

    The reason is that noticed much better battery life with Leopard vs Snow Leopard.
