If it were for one machine, I would agree. It also feels like these are fairly incremental upgrades which cost $50 each. I was upgrading three machines. Starting with v9 I'm only doing two, but that's still $100/year (or in this case, $100 twice in a year) to gain a couple of minor features, mostly fixes for problems (like v8's mediocre support for multi-screen setups) that really should be provided free. Again, if their licensing was on-par with VMWare's (which provides...
To be fair, they usually do provide a final release that allows compatibility, but you're right, a new major release is required to take advantage of new host OS features. Earlier this year I felt compelled to upgrade from 8 to 9 because full-screen support in v8 was terrible. So yes, I paid $50 per Mac so I could take advantage of full-screen mode with multiple displays. Better battery life and quicker snapshot creation would be great, but I doubt the real-world benefits...
Hmm, also their website is still showing Parallels 9 as the latest...
Okay then. I've been using Parallels since v3 and have paid for every upgrade since. I have three Macs and have paid $150 roughly every year. My Parallels 9 licenses were purchased four months ago. The thought of shelling out another $100-150 (honestly I don't need it anymore on that third Mac) four months after having just done so does not sit well with me. I use Parallels Access too which is yet more money I'd have to shell out, but I would be perfectly happy with the...
 Indeed. I switched from ink to laser years ago and my yearly printing costs dropped from about $200 to about $20. No way I'll ever go back to ink.
 Thanks for the suggestion - unfortunately I have this very specific need, however, where I need to remote in to my Parallels session using Parallels Access where I will then run a SSH session. My Parallels VM will be running my VPN session - I can't connect directly with my iPad. I could, I suppose, use the VPN on the iPad itself and SSH but the thing is here that I run Parallels all day long for my work connection and it would be nice to simply remote-control that when...
Erm... I've been using vi for over 25 years now. How come I didn't think of that :) This won't work when using vi mode on the command-line to edit history ('cause ^C will cancel and bring up an empty shell prompt), but this will be very helpful when editing files. Thank's a bunch. Time for me to turn in my neck beard ;-)
I'm kinda surprised to see the Android growth, even in the low-end market. I finally got a Moto X for my company phone in part because I wanted to have a chance to try out Android and see why so many of my friends say it's so much better than iOS. After two months of use, I can only fathom their claim is based on never having used iOS. All of that tweaking and customization Android users talk about simply isn't there. I haven't found much I can do with my Moto X that I...
How come none of these keyboards has an ESC key? I (very) often use Parallels Access to connect to a Windows VM from which I VPN in to the office where I then SSH in to the various Unix machines I support. ESC is critical for using the vi editor and I have yet to see any of these iPad keyboards that can transmit the ESC key. Okay, I may be one of the three people on the planet who do this, but still...
Ouch... So I capitulated in my last post and admitted you and I have different workflows. Which one of them is correct? Both - I don't get yours, but it works for you, just as mine works for me. Feel free to (continue to) correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't believe I never insulted you nor asked for you to be so degrading. I'll take my ignorance (and my years of experience) and leave you to either enjoy your superiority, or the insecurity that causes you to insult me; I'm...
