    Dear Parallels-Team,

    a properly working coherence mode is the main selling point of your software. I guess many customers/potential customers will want this feature again. If I just want a full screen linux system I could just use Virtual Box. However, a nice integration like in the past would be a real selling point.
    I just wanted to make sure that I raise my voice and call out for this feature.

    BR
    Florian, hopefully a future customer

    I assume the difficulty is that 3D Effects cannot be disabled anymore, in many of the Linux desktop environments.

    Even if there are certain restrictions, it would be a big step forward to have this feature back running. For example, I would love to run sandboxed software in Containers, but Containers cannot interact with the desktop. There is a solution for X11, but that only runs under Linux. So I'd use a small Linux as a host, die X11 Windows would be "Coherenced", and the Apps would be isolated in Containers in a Guest OS. This is convenient, secure, and allows for certain scenarios not possible otherwise, for example be connected to 4 or 5 Microsoft Teams Accounts at the same time on the same screen.
