I mean, what else can I say? If you watch the attached video, you’ll see what I mean.
- Mac OS X 10.4.8, Parallels Desktop
- Windows XP, Internet Explorer 7
- Fedora Core 6, Firefox 2
- Ubuntu 6.10 Desktop, Firefox 2
All running on my usual 2GHz Core Duo MacBook with 2 GB RAM (512MB/VM).
Performance is awesome. The video is in real time and the only reason the VMs were set to 800×600 was to try and keep the screencast relatively crisp when converted to a small FLV.
Tip: It’s in the docs and all, but it took me a while to remember how to launch multiple windows in Parallels Desktop, since it loads VMs in the same window when opening them: File menu » New Window
