  1. So, how long until Parallels will completely do away with the Windows install? Not long I hope. When you can buy a software package for, say, 80 bucks that can do all that you need Windows to do, without the Windows back-end nightmare, then the angels will sing, and the heavens will open before our feet. Can I get a hallelujah!?

  2. Imagine Windows CE on the iPhone:

    “Windows CE has detected a new input device. Please install drivers for your fingers.”

    “It looks like you’re trying to zoom in on a picture. Windows does not support MultiTouch, please use the (fugly) zoom buttons instead.”

    “It looks like you’re trying to make a call. Would you like Windows CE to help you?”

    And so on and so on.

    Windows. Crap for the masses.

    You are not told that there is an update because it is not officially released yet. The last few “updates” that MDN has reported have all been beta versions. When the official app is updated, the software update in Parallels will notify you.
