  1. I kept stumbling on your blog post when trying to figure out how to actually activate the swipe from edge feature so I thought I drop a note to help another Parallels noobie like myself. To actually enable it you must install Parallels Tools (under the “Virtual Machine” menu -> “reinstall Parallels Tools”).

    Thanks for dropping the note! Perhaps I assume that everyone would install the Parallels Tools 🙂 I’ll add that into my article.

    Have you ever used Oracle’s VirtualBox? I wonder how that stacks up with Parallels. Maybe a future comparison?

  4. Ken Ng says:

    I definitely have used VirtualBox, especially since I work at Oracle too 🙂 Perhaps I’ll work on a comparison. Makes sense to justify why one would want to pay for Parallels vs the free VirtualBox.

Let me know what you think...
