Parallels and VirtualBox

Filed under: System Administration — cygnl7 @ 12:22 am

I use a Mac at work. I’ve been using Parallels since back before VMWare Fusion was available. It’s worked fine for me. That was until I tried a newer version of Ubuntu. It seems that the Parallels Tools that come with version 3 won’t work with XOrg 1.5.2, and this has been a problem for a while according to the Parallels forums. (Not to mention the first time I tried to install Ubuntu Parallels Desktop crashed in the middle of the process.) So I decided to try VirtualBox.
