I downloaded Parallels 5 trial two days ago as VirtualBox 3.2 is bloody awful and slow on my MBP4,1 with Snow Leopard and I've lost my licence key for VMWare 2 in a house move.

Parallels 5 wouldn't play nicely with OpenSUSE 11.3 x64 so when I saw Paralells 6 was released yesterday I downloaded the trial and upgraded it.

It felt a bit faster than v5 even before installing the Parallels Tools but much faster once they were installed.

So far I prefer it to VirtualBox but it lacks the polish of VMWare.
