Anyone reading this, could you please send me a screenshot of the massive upgrade ad that’s appearing when you run Parallels 5—I dismissed it and can’t get it back, but want a picture of it for use in an article.

I thought that it wouldn't display it after 9/14, since it was a "Special prerelease offer for their favorite customer, me". I was wrong.

Thanks very much for doing that. I’m shocked at how little sanctity there is in software (especially paid) now. When you buy a product, you don’t expect it to come with adverts and to snoop on you.
