    I'm using Parallel Desktop 6 to run multiple OSs right now, what do you guys use?

    Haven't tried VM Ware or Bootcamp yet though.

    VirtualBox. It's free and I can run my old copy of 98 on it.

    I use Parallels 6 and VMware Fusion with my Boot Camp Partition.

    I have to admit, I like Parallels more due to its speediness but I still like Fusion for its stability.

    Boot Camp (for some gaming) + Parallels (for quick access to some programs in my Boot Camp partition = Best of both worlds. :D

    My take

    With all the problems from Parallels 6, I have to vote for vmware fusion as better as well as virtualbox because that one is free.

    No, seriously though.. vmware is much more stable and fast enough for me.
