This release has been handled horribly. If you go the the Parallels Desktop product page, the current version is 8. If you follow through to the Parallels Desktop upgrade page, the upgrade offered is to version 8. The only place version 9 appears is on the blog and the email current customers received. So, we effectively paid to be Release Candidate testers. This is without doubt a Show Stopper bug that is in-your-face the second you boot Windows, it's not a corner case bug. This should have never been released. I think everybody that paid for a version 9 upgrade should get some kind of good faith credit back from Parallels.
