Publisher's Description

Parallels Workstation is a desktop virtualization solution that empowers users with the ability to create completely networked, fully portable, entirely independent virtual machines on a single physical machine. It allows users to run multiple operating systems (such as Windows, Linux, FreeBSD, OS/2 and so on) simultaneously without rebooting or hard disk partitioning. It is the ideal solution to accelerate software development, reduce hardware costs, improve IT efficiency, present complex demostrations on a laptop and create student-friendly teaching environments.

Nobody here using VirtualBox?
Best VM software I have ever used.
I have Longhorn, XP and several Linux distros running in VMs on a Vista Ultimate machine with no problems. Literally minutes to set up and it is FREE!

Wes: I didnt see Ubuntu (Dapper Drake) on the list of supported guest OS

It's definitely "inspired" by VMWare, and it froze when I tried to boot the latest Ubuntu Dapper Drake Flight.

For a home user this is indeed value for money.

For the pro nothing compare to VMWare wks with unlimited snapshots. Also VMV Server and Player are free, but for those of you who actually want to run and modify several machines at home this saves you some $130 compared to VMW.

seems like that this is a copy of vmware... im going to try it but, maybe parallel could make a little bit different :|

Good performance but lacks some nice features that are in VPC and VMware such as drag and drop between guest and host and shared folders. However for the price it is excellent value for money. I will be keeping my eye on this company.
