    got parallels desktop running on a macbook pro with a radeon x1600
    been wasting some time checking compatibility of some windows demos and emulators under the thing. windows xp is the emulated OS. with each upgrade of parallels some issues get fixed, while others seem to regress, so i figured it would be useful for others to dump here my list of what works and what doesnt from things that should all be working.
    you can download the demos from pouet if you're interested.
