Virtualization and Notebooks: Not all roses
Personally, I've had nothing but great results with all virtualization solutions out there: VMWare, Parallels and VirtualBox. It feels like showing off the zen of computing would make any bystander Switch like *that*, but I am not an evangelist.
However, some people have sent comments at the MacWindows.com staff, complaining about a misterious problem with Parallels and MacBooks. Apparently, Build 3188 can cause some Mac lappies to grow amnesia about their battery and effectively render itself battery-less.
This is much, much more serious than the blog-whine on how Parallels can decrease your use time by over 50%. The blogger in question should rethink its choice of guest OS: it's been documented that Vista is a power hog. DUH!
