The Windows emulation software is decent. However,
the Parallels Toolbox software they push on you is a security liability.
This software auto-updates without user input. There is no way to disable auto-update, Or rather, they occasionally add a fake feature to disable auto-update but it is a false feature, it still auto-updates. and when it does it logs you out and asks you to buy a new subscription. I un-installed, finally fed up, a run-around from support, ineptitude and plain lies. The windows emulation software prompted me to re-install. "It's free for you, you have a lifetime license". I reinstalled. I got a pop-up. "Clean your system". What is this? I clicked on it. "You have to buy a subscription to use this feature."
I have had enough.
I STRONGLY RECOMMEND YOU DO NOT USE ANY SOFTWARE FROM THIS DEVELOPER. Their corporate philosophy is criminal.

Also, can't find any documentation on why I can't print from the Parallels Window7 vm to my HP OfficeJet G85 printer/fax/scanner that still works like a charm (Mac itself doesn't have a driver for the printer but Windows 7 & 8.x do). Just got another Mac from work and I'll insist on Fusion from VMware. I won't touch Parallels again.

The site and software are good, but the required e-mail I shared now turned into "spam target".

Parallels ist einer der großen Spieler im Bereich der Virtualisierung. Ich habe mit Parallels for Mac seit Jahren gute Erfahrung und betreibe so Programme, die es nur für Windows gibt auf meinem Mac - ohne Neustart oder Boot Camp Installation.

Good software, but the (unique/throw-away) email address I used when purchasing ended up in the hands of spammers.

We use PSBM in-house and it is a good product even for 1st gen. Like all virtualization software it has limitations and most of that is due to resource requirements and system overhead. If you build your server with enough horsepower to compensate you can have, as in our case, nearly a dozen different "servers" all in one box. You could do even more if you were committed to the idea.

Virtualisierungssoftware für Intel-Macs
Schade, dass Windows-Vista zu sehr der Selbstverwaltung frönt, anstatt die Ressourcen den Nutzern bereitzustellen.

Very dishonest, unethical company. They trick you into buying licenses, almost blackmailing you.
