    I am currently using the trial of both programs to find out which I like best. There's two issues though:

    - VMWare seems to have a drag lag in unity mode, whenever I drag a window, I can see the background from the windows desktop behind it, it doesn't seem to refresh fast enough. Is there a setting for this? This is on the newest 27 inch i7 imac, so that certainly should be fast enough not to have this kind of annoying problem. Resizing a window also goes somewhat slower than I would expect.

    - Parallels. Starting a VM seems rather confusing. Unlike vmware it's not hidden until windows is started. So I see the parallels VM window and it resizes once windows has started up (login screen) then resized yet again, then applies the unity mode because that's my default mode.. I don't want to see any of this. I want it to remain hidden until the unity (or whatever parallels calls it) is ready.. Is this possible?

    Thanks!
