[Version 1.7]

Works okay with Windows guests, although not as polished as VMWare or Parallels. VirtualBox is definitely the best solution for running Linux and Unix guests on a Mac, though… they keep it working with all the latest distros, and it even works with GNOME 3 in the latest Fedora 16 betas.

Why would you pay for this when you can do it with Automator for free? (And probably Preview too, in Leopard.)

Certainly some nice enhancements in 2.0, for Mac users... the native interface isn't much to write home about, but full screen mode works a lot better (especially with Spaces/Expose), and seamless mode now works properly on secondary displays.

Not being limited to NAT networking any more is cool, too..

I'm not sure which is scarier... the fact that somebody can charge $100 for this, or the fact that any school would use iWeb as a way to teach web design.

Great little lightweight vector design tool, but (for my purposes) let down by poor quality of SVG imports.

LineForm costs roughly the same amount and imports even complex SVGs perfectly, but has a less polished UI.

I guess I'll be sticking with the (free) for now, which has the advantage of saving natively to SVG too...

(MBP, 10.5.3) Install the huge download, select File->New... nothing happens, except that it crashes a couple of minutes later. Waste of time and effort.

Since Apple bought CUPS earlier this year, why should we have to download somebody else's version any more?

Still no Parallels Tools for Solaris guests... VMware Fusion way ahead here.

Obviously enough for VMware to make the effort :) I know a couple of dozen people who run Solaris in VMware, and most of them tried Parallels first-- that sort of word of mouth can't be good for business...
