5 out of 5 eggsWorks for gaming

Pros: Excellent piece of software. Works well for virtualizing Linux and Windows both.
3D acceleration works well enough on WinXp to play Halo, SupCom2, MapleStory and other games on my Macbook Pro w/ 650M GPU.

Cons: Some intermittent networking issues with Ubuntu virtual machines.

5 out of 5 eggsRegistration key works with 7 or 8

Pros: The Flash drive is packaged with a piece of paper with a printed registration key. I had already installed a trial copy of Parallels 8 and the registration key activated it with no problem. Nice that I got the 4 GB usb drive.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I have used Parallels version 6 and now version 8. I am happy with both.
