5 out of 5 eggsGreatly enjoying this product

Pros: Works extremely well! Integrates smoothly with Yosemite 10.10.1 including the "Coherence" integration with the dock and desktop. Runs Windows 8.1 and app effortlessly. This product has allowed me to get rid of my remaining Windows 7 desktop, move to Windows 8.1, yet retain a few key apps that are critical to me such as Quicken Windows and Office 2010 Pro. My goal was to simplify my computing world and after some investment of time, it has done that. Cut-and-paste works seamlessly between Windows and Mac apps.

Cons: Took quite a bit of fiddling to get the settings to work just as desired. Coherence (the integration with the dock) works very well, but some of the settings are buried in some confusing menus - you have to hunt around a bit. It's not suitable for a computer newbie, but with a modicum of ability you can make the product work extremely well. Some of the Windows-to-Mac process transfers don't work, but that's to be expected given their different mechanisms. So far, I've found simple workarounds.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I am very happy with Parallels Desktop. My goal was to eliminate a standalone Windows desktop, and that's exactly what I've been able to do. I did not try out the migration process, because I already knew that the Windows 7 and the Microsoft Office 2010 activations would not work on the new device, so I've bought new and installed clean.

You can quickly and easily switch between Coherence (integration with the Dock and Desktop) and traditional full-screen VM window. I find it helpful to use the full-screen when I do a lot of work with Windows-only structures, and it's great to switch back and forth.

I highly recommend Parallels if your goal is to focus on productivity, getting things done, and enjoying the power of Windows and other OS's within the stability and security of the Mac world.

5 out of 5 eggsEasy as Pie!

Pros: I'm traditionally a Windows person, and I'm a Windows developer primarily, but recently I've come to appreciate the dark side. I've got a mac mini and love using it! I like the tools available to me and it's not Linux and the confusion that comes with which distro, how do I do that, blah blah. But, I do want to use Visual Studio. And that's not possible on a Mac (not just yet any way) so in the meantime, a KVM has been doing me, but I wanted something more integrated.

Parallels provides that. I've been using it for several hours, it was quick to set up and I even installed Windows of the DVD from my Windows PC! Flawless. And when it runs full screen, you wouldn't know I was on a Mac! I have never seen or used Parallels before.

Cons: I would love to be able to install this on multiple machines, I'd happily pay a *little* more to have a multi machine and be able to share the image.

Coherence mode (having the windows appear like any other mac window) really punished my system ( I was installing so will try again) not a big con.

Other Thoughts: Does exactly what I was aiming to do, and makes it easy.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible Support

Pros: None that I know of -- I couldn't get it installed.

Cons: Horrible customer support. I had a problem installing it. Called Customer Support. The person I "talked" to had such a thick accent I had great difficulty understanding. She evidently had the same problem as her line of questions made absolutely no sense. "What version of OS X do you have?" "Snow Leopard" "We don't support that." "OK, what if I upgrade to Mavericks?" "We only support Snow Leopard Server" For 38 minutes we went around and around, returning to "What version of OS X" several times. When I asked to speak to her supervisor she ignored the request, as if I hadn't said it. When I asked again a bit later she simply hung up.
