This would have to be the most underhanded thing I have seen in a long time. At least give people some warning that this new restriction was going to be applied, especially to your loyal and repeat customers of many years. Am I wrong or did you lose all our email addresses?
All it would have taken was a considered, open an honest email campaign prior to enforcing this restriction and you would not infuriated an entire market segment to the point that it will affect your bottom line in a negative way. The only people that will be happy as a result of this obvious brain fail will be the folks over at VM Ware.
You should immediately issue a patch for this mistake, or publish an article clearly advising users how to downgrade to the previous version so they can consider their options without having their VM's crippled in the mean time.
If this doesn't happen in the next few days, you have lost another loyal customer in me. This is a shame as for years now I have been shouting the benefits of Parallels to all my colleagues. Thanks for making me look like a fool.
