    Its a virtualization software used a lot on Apple Computers to Virtualize Windows operating Systems. I have tried it without too much luck. Since a free key is being offered I am going to try it again.

    Yes they first come out with Parallels for Mac desktop but for awhile now have solution for Windows and Linux. I have Parallels desktop and free a key would be a nice offer, its extremly easy to use and fast.

    I've read it does not support NAT for networking? This true?
    Meriadoc, how is the networking implemented? Any drivers like VMware os something more like VB?

    First, thanks for the key.

    I've tried them all and Parallels runs very fast. However, I had system stability issues with it installed. Also, they haven't been keeping up the development of the Windows version (as compared to the Mac version). If they were smart they would devote more resources to developing the Windows version, especially since it's cheap compared to VMWare Workstation.

    Since I'm getting a free key, I'll try it again.
