I downloaded version 3, installed it, had to reinstall the tools manually on my Vista install, but am quite pleased with the results. Parallels works well, and is such an improvement over emulation of years ago! I still have not decided to use boot camp or parallels, but this version may push me over to parallels. VMware looks to be a good product, but I've invested in the Parallels camp and will stick there until something really goes wrong. Anyone else having a simply positive experience too? I love showing coherence off. By the way, I couldn't find a cut-off date for the free upgrade. I purchased 2.5 in early April this year and didn't know if I was eligible for the upgrade. Happy Friday!
