    Same here. Nothing important. But I would have thought that the upgrade to 11.04 did not blow away the virtual harddisk used by 10.10 and the files would be available someplace. Like you said, I didn't lose anything critical, just some downloads that I'll have to repeat if they are unrecoverable.

    I also experienced this problem, not a crucial VM at all so the loss didn't actually matter to me except for the inconvenience of setting everything up again.

    The upgrade process from 10.10 to 11.04 seemed to hang on something 'video' related in the upgrade terminal, although I haven't got a note of exactly what it was. The only fix seemed to be to kill the VM and start from scratch (on restart it had obviously 'upgraded' the boot drive sufficiently far that it would no longer start).

    I think it would be reasonable of us to ask for an update on the Parallels update including PT for 11.04 at this stage as well. While I appreciate it has only been on 'full release' for a couple of weeks now the GM versions have been available for much longer as part of the predictable release schedule.

    The 2D Unity interface appears to work very well though, or Gnome 3 (although I haven't yet tried it).

    Same for me, the tools don't like version 11.04! I'm wondering how long will you take guys to release an update for this important OS?!

    Come on, Parallels...

    Another Parallels user subscribed and waiting.

    One of the main things that drew me to PD versus other solutions was Parallels Tools. Potential new users seeing this fiasco just might spend their money elsewhere.

    Subscribed. I am interested in buying Parallels if they can support Ubuntu 11.04 / Linux Mint / PinGuy

    No Unity Environment with Ubuntu 11.04

    I did the same thing as most of you. Tried "In-App" upgrade which destroyed the VM and then tried new install of Ubuntu 11.04 which installed for me but will not let you use the Unity Environment. Stuck with the Classic. I'll wait like everyone else.

    I'll try appealing to their greed.

    You can get your $49 fee for an upgrade as soon as you support Linux in a reasonable manor. Until then nothing.
