I've been using this program since before its official release, and I've been amazed by how well and stably it runs Windows XP Professional. I use it nearly every weekday at work to run AutoCAD for blueprint drafting, and it has very rarely failed me, and even then, I'm fairly certain that the instability of the Windows operating system itself had a great deal to do with that. I haven't tried any alternatives, so I don't know how it measures up to other applications of this nature, but I've been very satisfied with Parallels so far. The only thing I seem to be having repeated trouble with is having Windows recognize blank CDs. It doesn't seem to want to allow me to drag and drop files onto the CD drive icon. I'm not sure if Parallels or Windows is to blame for this, though. In any case, this is a small note when considering the incredible stability of this application in general.

TigerLaunch has been a very nice way for me to extend the amount of programs I can easily access. Since my dock is pretty well filled up, it's nice to be able to use TigerLaunch to get to my lesser-used programs without having to dig into the Applications folder. At first, I overloaded it with applications, and it became a bit sluggish. However, when I lightened its load by removing programs that I almost never use, it sped up very nicely and now remains a part of my very small collection of startup applications.

I downloaded the AppZapper trial, and it works very nicely. The drag and drop interface is very quick and easy, and the program seems to succeed in finding files related to the unwanted program and getting rid of them.

The price seems fair, but I hardly ever seem to have the need to fully uninstall a program, simply because I don't try out a ton of new software. So, for me, it doesn't quite seem worth the money, but if you find yourself frequently trying and deleting new applications, this might be very useful for you.

Thanks a lot for this! It functions great and looks a ton better in this new version than it did in its original format. The only thing I can think that would be cool is an option to have the widget update with a new verse more often, with choices for twice or three times a day, perhaps. Of course, I have no idea how complicated that would be, and it's great as it is.

I've been using Macromedia Flash Professional MX 2004 for about a year now, and it may just be that I haven't fully gotten the hang of it yet, but it seems incredibly buggy. It crashes on a regular basis, starts slow and runs slow on my 1Ghz G4 Powerbook and the help files are sadly unhelpful for the most part.
The output is great for the Web sites I design, but it's generally a very painful experience to get there.

The only way I've used this program is to synchronize my entire laptop's hard drive to a folder on a LaCie external hard drive, so I don't know how well the timed backups work. The software has worked great for everything I've used it for. Just select the folder on the computer and the one on the external hard drive and it runs great. Very stable, and the price is well worth it when compared to other backup software. I certainly suggest giving it a shot.

Fast loading, quick FTP program that has great features. I've been using it since version 2.6.2, and it's been great for updaing the Web sites I work on. It's got a great interface, lots of functionality, and is very stable.
The only thing that I wish they would have included in this version is the ability to select your own external editor (they limit your choices to a list). It would also be nice to double-click Flash files and Quicktime movies in "My Stuff" and have them open in their respective programs, rather than coming up with a blank window.
