Someone needs to inform Parallels, that the BSD family of operating systems are not Linux. Click on "more" in the app's description to see what I mean.

To what problem should this be a solution? Why consolidate on a Mac in OSX for USD 2000 if you can do the same the same thing on a PC in Linux for free?

What Linux VM lets you run VMs of Mac OS X and Mac OS X Server? And I'm not referring to unsupported hacks (which are meaningless for enterprise customers who don't think twice about $2,000)... I'm talking real, supported solutions.

I do not see the point why I should have a car that can run on gasoline, electricity and LPG at the same time, as long as it moves forward.

They know. You're just misunderstanding what you read. All the references to Linux are about Linux running in a VM. That is, unless they modified the text after your posting - in which case you have my apologies.
