I'm running Kubuntu Edgy in Parallels on a MacBook Pro, and while it's very fast (feels faster than the native install on my Athlon 64 3800+ at home), it's not very satisfying b/c there are no shared folders or shared clipboard between OS X and a Linux guest OS in Parallels (b/c Parallels Tools are not yet ported to Linux), so transferring data between the two systems involves sneakernet, FTP, SCP, Samba, etc., or for small stuff, re-typing it. If Parallels Tools for Linux were available, I could chuck Entourage and just use Evolution in Parallels for my Exchange client and I'd be much happier. Would also love to see Coherence mode for a Linux guest, that's very nice for running Windows progs (although I usually go for weeks without running one). For anyone who is running Linux on a late-model iBook or PowerBook, how is the performance compared to x86 notebooks contemporary to it? Would you recommend something like that over, say, a ThinkPad T40? Thanks, Jonathan
