I always used both Parallels and VMWare but ended up dropping Parallels in favor of VMWare a year or two back as I didn't have the time to continuously compare them and there wasn't all that much difference and VMWare seemed more solid to me at the time.

Yes I have and it's not an off the cuff thing. VMWare 5 didn't really add that much to VMWare 4.5 and there was about a 3 year gap between the two.

 

VMWare is an awesome company but they don't have the resources on the Mac side. They are a Windows shop and Mac development is clearly not a high priority when compared to Parallels who is a Mac shop with some Windows development. It's just the nature of the game.

 

I'm not saying VMWare is a bad product. I'm saying compared to what Parallels does it's development is miles behind.

Just gotten around to write up an in-depth review of Parallels Desktop 9 here. Lots of nice improvements and great performance (it's already so since version 7 onwards!) Not too sure if it's worth upgrading from version 8, but if you're on 7 or below, the combined features in 8 and 9 is well worth the upgrade.
