Parallels Tools for Solaris

If you have any interest in seeing a Solaris version of the Parallels Tools, a good place to register your interest would be this thread on the Parallels Forums.

Or, you could just use VMware instead, which already has them.

Four Gigabytes, Four OSes, One Mac

Upgraded my MacBook Pro to 4Gb yesterday, and was eager to play around and see how much it would help. What better way than to fire up all my virtual machines at once and see how it performed? Here's the video... sorry it's a nasty .mov file, but in my defence, it really is encoded as a Theora movie (a plugin for which you may need to install from here, if you're watching on Mac or Windows).

I haven't tried to see if I can trick it into playing in Totem et al. yet on Solaris / Linux-- let me know if you have any joy. For the record, the OSes are OS X 10.4.11, Solaris Nevada b77, Ubuntu Gutsy, and Win XP, all running in VMware Fusion 1.1.

EDIT: Here's a more Solaris-and-Linux-friendly OGG/Theora version.
