    When is USB support coming?

    Right now, I still have to use a PC box for QuickBooks Pro, since I can't print checks to the attached USB printer:-( I reaaly want to put the PC box in the trash....:)

    Also, a full screen resolution for the 20" iMac would be very nice.

    Zima, can you print to the attached printer if you share it from your Mac and access it as a network printer in your Windows VM? I'd expect that to work just fine.

    Thanks Neuron,

    I tried that and couldn't get it to work (saw someplace that it works for PS printers only, and I am using an Epson Stylus Photo 820.)

    I can't give you exact date but USB support will be introduced prior to official product release.

    love parallels. But on the macbook pro if you do something continuous, say a stream from rhapsody, it gets so hot that I think it could be detrimental to the machine. Is there going to be any way to mitigate the heat in the future?

    Honestly, I think the heat issue doesn't really depend on Parallels. Mine gets really hot when I crank some work on OSX too. The only difference I might see is that Parallels is probably using much more memory than OSX and that could increse heat even more.

    If you have purchased a given piece of hardware and you make normal use of it, for it then to be overheating would be a problem with manufacture. Wouldn't it?

    Wow, thank you!

    I'm astounded at the way you folks are turning out the betas and addressing the concerns. Are you ever going to take a weekend off???? :D

    The fullscreen support is just wonderful. I've tried one of my (Windows only) slideshows in fullscreen mode with audio and it was beautiful. The photo transitions are smooth; this really performs. Now I can use my Macbook for slideshow presentations!

    Thank you so much!!! (Yes, I prepaid around beta2!)
