As a chronic fan of the Parallels VM product I'm reluctant to criticize them for much, but I think this latest round of beta releases is a bad idea. The introduction of new razzle dazzle features into a universe of struggling users trying to get 1970 working right also introduced a new round of "it doesn't work!" that needs to be addressed. Instead of solidifying the released product and thereby pleasing a large group of users we have only more chaos. Instead of talking about networking issues and USB isochronous video solutions we're talking about coherence. We have eye candy instead of functionality. We have bootcamp horror stories instead of Linux integration. Stop the madness! Fork the project. Disassociate future beta releases from the existing released product. Don't leave people thinking that a beta release is an upgrade. Clarify the role of the beta product - state expectations you have of beta testers. Qualify them! Not everyone should be a beta tester. Take beta discussions to another forum - manage this project better.
