    I'll vouch for what Steve said there...
    Here's what they've done w/ my ticket so far: http://andy.hwang.tw/misc/Parallels-Support.png

    I don't know if it's because I'm used to vBulletin's awesome support or what... but at the very least they should read my ticket carefully before choosing an irrelevant canned response...

      I liked parallels, but when I needed support it was big fail.
      I got a vmware license and got another free parallel license.

      But still using only vmware actually. I uninstalled parallels.

        I am running here VMWare Fusion 2 on my 17" MacBook Pro. It is an impressive piece of software.

        I think a screenshot say more than thousand words. Take a look at the attached screenshot running Gothic 3 in a virtual Windows Vista machine under VMWare Fusion 2. The sound stutter here and there but it is quite playable

          That's really impressive. My Macbook (none pro) has got an Intel-Chip for graphics and VMWare doesn't find a 3d-acceleration.
          As far as I'm informed, VMWare fusion is the only VM being able to wrap 3D from the guest to the host, is that correct?

            I play Counter Strike: Source on my mac pro and it's just fine. Steam games look great.
            I am using crossover games for windows games on the mac.

              Not much faith in VMware fusion either - just downloaded the trial and tried to put the W7 beta on it... but it kept reporting errors and just died in the end, even virtualbox managed it!

              Although it could be that I'm on Snow Leopard at the mo :-/

                The only thing I have with my Mac Pro is about power. Sometimes it won't get up from sleeping or have some long time to boot. If I'm using it for around 1 hour after a sleeping and get it to a new sleeping, it fail.

                Otherwise, I'm very happy with Mac hardware

                  You must have done something wrong, because I was able to install Windows 7 with no problems on VMware Fusion. Just be sure you tell the software you're setting up "Windows Vista," either 32-bit or 64-bit.

                    Yeah it automatically selected it as Vista 64 bit - perhaps it's because I'm on Snow Leopard :/

                      VMware Fusion more or less does automatic detection, so if it's trying to set you up with a Vista 64-bit VM, it's because Win7 is 64-bit. If that's wrong, just change it.

                        Yeah it did automatically detect - it pretty much went ahead and did the install itself, so I'm not sure any of my actions had an impact. All I can think of is I'm on SL. I'll try again tomorrow when I revert back to leopard.
