  • I initially bought Parallels for $99 and it worked pretty well. Then a few weeks after that they released 3.0, and I happily clicked yes to upgrade. It upgraded my 2.x instance, then insisted I buy a new license key for 3.x. I wiped it and reinstalled 2.x.

    Then when I upgraded to Leopard a few months later Parallels completely tanked. It would lock up the whole system when starting up for upwards of 10 minutes; I couldn't even open the activity monitor to kill the process. I don't know if others had this same issue, but I was thoroughly disgusted by the experience.

    I reluctantly dropped $80 on Fusion, and haven't looked back. VMWare had a free converter that I downloaded and changed my Parallels images into VMWare images and they just worked. Maybe I'm being a VMWare fanboy and just had a bad experience with Parallels, but the VMWare experience has been so much better I had to reply :)
