The only caveat regarding Linux in a Parallels VM is that because
Parallels has not yet developed Parallels tools for Linux, you have no
access to the Mac clipboard or file system from within a Linux VM. You
can get around the file system issue by using NFS or sshfs, but I'm not
aware of any workaround for the clipboard issue. I did read on some
Parallels blog that they are looking into Parallels tools for Linux, but
that sounds like it means it's a long way off.

Anyone running VMWare on a Mac? If so, do they have this problem solved?
