Parallels 6 Mac Desktop – Where’s the speed again?

After being bombarded from three email accounts regarding the benefits of upgrading the Parallels 6, I decided to take the plunge.

40% faster this and 20% better that an all that.

Fact is, I do like Parallels 5, so 6 should be more of the same AND MORE.

Except it’s not. Release Build 6.0.11820 is crap.

Run one virtual and it starts to get slow quite quickly. Run two and the effect is almost instant.

I’m running the suspiciously early update that they have put out today. It addresses “performance issues”. We will see.

But to get something out this quick smacks of somebody doing a particularly bad job of code compilation. Maybe it shipped with all the performance/debug code in place.

I’ll let you know if/when I get it up and running
