Parallels Users Irate At Parallels Over Buggy Software…. Meanwhile VMWare Is Laughing All The Way To The Bank

Parallels Desktop 4 has been out for a couple of weeks now and has already had one major update, but that that hasn’t stopped users from being ticked off at the company. Threads like this one have sprung up on their support forum with angry users proclaming VMWare Fusion’s superiority. Other threads like this one have users asking for their money back. But there is a large list of threads describing a variety of issues including slow speeds and upgrade issues.

Now, I have been using Parallels Desktop 4 and I have not seen any of this myself. In fact I have found this release to be a bit faster than version 3 as well as being more stable. Plus I uninstall and reinstall the application every time I upgrade which from previous experience helps to avoid issues. So maybe that’s why I have no issues. Or perhaps I am just lucky?

In any case, I’d love to have Parallels respond to this. Perhaps someone from the company would be kind enough to leave a comment or send me an e-mail explaining their side of the story. If I hear from them, I’ll post whatever they send me in an update.

In the meantime, VMWare must be enjoying this.
