Parallels 4

Parallels 4 users want their money back • The Register: "Updated Parallels v4.0, billed as speeding Windows virtualisation on Macs, has been slated by some users for slowing their systems to a crawl instead. Some are demanding their money back.

Parallels software enables Macs to run Windows concurrently with Mac OS X as an application alongside other Mac OS X applications. Files can be shared between the two environments and external disks can be seen in both as well. Version four was released on November 4 and added things like a better GUI, support for up to 8-core processors, and better integration of Windows and Mac applications but the main billed event was the speed boost."
