    With Apple ending 32-bit application support, it has put hundreds upon hundreds of extremely useful apps in sever jeopardy. No one is really happy about this and we don't know what to do about it. Apple simply doesn't give two craps about our needs in this respect and it is very upsetting.

    Parallels and Corel have a pristine opportunity to make running 32-bit apps a huge part of marketing going forward. There's no doubt that we're going to need superior 32-bit app performance for at least the next several+ years.

    Please work from this standpoint for the next major release of Parallels. We need a better Coherence mode for running apps along side Catalina native run apps. We need better graphical acceleration for macOS 32-bit apps such as graphical apps or even games. This is going to be a very important thing for a large number of macOS users who have been disenfranchised and outright angered by Apple.

    I should mention that two factors here are going to be important to all of us since 32-bit app support will be frequent:
    1- startup time needs to improve for macOS or it needs to sleep and come back to life faster. We need to be able to have as little overhead as possible. Too bad a LXC (Linux Containers)-like solution isn't available that would use less resources for additional instances of macOS!
    2- graphical performance is really important. I know that adding graphical acceleration seems to be a bear of a task, but it's just so important at this point to have superior graphical performance and functionality for running older apps like FCP Studio and other such intensive apps that Apple has flushed down the toilet with this update.

    3- superior mouse/cursor performance needs to be addressed. Right now Mojave cursor performance is just not that great. It doesn't always (or often) feel mac-like in scrolling on pages and documents.

    Catalina sucks. I can't play my favorite games anymore, that dropped support for 32-bit apps really sucked and doesn't make sense :^( plus it's still so buggy and unstable. I did reinstall Mojave, for me it's Apple's best OS so far.
