    Thanks to the creators of this software :)

    This is the first VM I really like. It runs Windows Vista very fast and even aero works fast and without strange screen artifacts.

    I have bought Parallels 3, Parallels 4 in the past but I didn't really like it.

    I tried fusion and didn't like it (even the last version).

    I tried Virtualbox and did like it because its free, but it is too slow on playing video's in Windows media player.

    But after trying Parallels 5 I can say that this is the best VM by far.

    Rolls Over Backs Up and then Drives Over yet again

    My Gosh is this release fast - not only does it easily better the experiance from 4, but it completely buries VM Fusion 3, drives over it, backs up and then drives back over it. This speed is BootCamp comparable... Just Amazing... I have done a screencast of VM Fusion 3, and will do a Parallel 5 Screencast this weekend, followed by an A/B comparison.... Just amazing! Bravo!

    iMac with 4Gb of ram.

    I uninstalled PD4 first before I installed PD5 (probably not neccessary)

    And I created a new VM and deleted my old VM.
