WOW! That was totally out of the blue. Though it is absolutely no match for Parallels right now, I'm sure they will be adding more features to it and improving the interface. And it is hard to beat the price.

Odd, I don't remember hearing about it before from Windows or Linux users. I'm going to check it out and see if I can experiment with Vista.

I agree that Parallels is AMAZING. It works and it works well.

And while free is a great price -- I hope it doesn't steal away a large part of the market Parallels owns. I appreciate good programming. Before long we won't have any real developers left in the Apple arena.
