The latest Parallels Desktop for Mac Beta3 (Build 3106) is now available.


Plenty of new improvements in performance, device interoperability, Bootcamp and coherence.

The next major release will be a blinder.

I have been using Parallels for a while now, and it is really nice. Coherence made it insanely better.

I am really happy with build 3120 -- and I only have 512MB of memory!

Agree with 3120. Startup times have significantly improved.

I recently installed 2 gigs of ram into my iMac. I had to install seatbelts at the same time...

You may also need an ejector seat for the next time it crashes.

I wouldn't touch a Mac. I have standards!!! Since I installed Vista RTM over 2 months ago the only thing resembling a crash came from a game that didn't like nvidia's new OpenGL drivers.

You won't get that kind of stability on a Mac.




...I love trolling the Mac forums...

I've had that sort of stability on my Macs for the past three years, and the primary reason I switched in the first place was to escape XP's crashing, much of which I suppose was caused by errant third-party drivers.

May I remind you of Geekzone's Forum Usage Guidelines, which state that "trolling is not welcome"?

May I remind you that as a moderator I'm well aware of the guidelines. Some people just have no sense of humour. Lighten up!!

Anyway, back onto topic. I tryed Vista RC2 on parallels a few months ago, it was quite slow. It would be interesting trying rtm/final on it now. Especially with my new ram :)

Vista RTM is quite a bit quicker than the RC builds. Its also smaller. So if you were to assign it at least 1Gb then it should run fine.

A bit OT, but ha to ask this: have you tried Vista RTM?

I am asking because in the last few days I met a few people who said bad stuff about Vista and I asked if they had tried using it, and the answer was invariablty "no".

How on Earth can anyone have something to say about a system without trying it? It's a matter of downloading a demo version and running - and mind yo on a virtual machine you may only get the user experience look, but may not get the "feel", because virtual machines require "adaptations".

So, go ahead ask someone you know to let you use their PC for a day, then people can criticise.

Now please back on topic. I will open another thread just for this type of discussion.

By the way, we do have an Apple iMac here too. So I have used both sides.

Thanks Mauricio. Please let us Mac zealots know if there is anything we can do to stop attracting rogue moderators from trolling the otherwise pristine Mac threads in the future.

Warmest regards
