I don’t mind these frequently paid updates as long as the development effort goes towards what I want the most and that’s stability and performance. It’s too early to know the former but the latter is all there and it’s always been stable for me in the past.

One thing I absolutely hate is when they pack in software that I don’t want without my permission.

Parallels Access is free for 6 months. How nice of them but it’s a worthless service to me so I opted out at checkout. After installing Parallels Desktop, guess what? Access was installed anyway and it installs a kernel extension and launch daemon to start-up when you boot. No option to disable it.

I suspect it caused problems with my HHK pro keyboard which has its own kernel extension but I can’t say for sure. This is my work machine and I don’t have time to troubleshoot software problems for something I never asked for.

Hazel saved me though. Trashing the Access app triggered the cleanup process and removed everything related to it. It also detected the parallels preferences folder which should be deselected since it contains the prefs for Parallels Desktop so beware.

So, is it worth the upgrade? For me it is. I frequently have to boot multiple Windows VM’s to test for web development and waiting around becomes very irritating and breaks my flow.

For light use, don’t bother. You won’t be gaining much.

In terms of functionality, I prefer LaunchBar. I really wanted to like Alfred (and I do, especially the general interface) but the way it insists on integrating AppleScripts into the program instead of scanning for them prevents me from using it as my main.

LaunchBar also does a better job of finding, and indexing. I’ll keep checking into Alfred because the UI but it’s not there for me yet.

Anyone able to import from a WinXP install from Parallels 7?

It emits an error about corrupt headers the last second and I doubt it’s reporting the problem correctly since it occurred across 3 different installs and they run perfectly fine in Parallels.

If you have a recovery partition set to an external drive, make sure you verify the disk which will update the "boot support partitions".

My RAID configuration doesn't support the recovery partition so I had no choice but to set it externally. If you set it to another drive for any reason, just verify it so you won't be stuck when you really need it.
