Parallels has support built in for different flavours. I think this is why Ubuntu isn't as speedy because I had to install it as "Linux - other". I'm making an educated guess that if I was running one of the supported linux distributions like RedHat, it would be faster and able to integrate better.dona83 said:Um Parallels is asking me what kind of Linux Ubuntu is... what's the difference?
Ubuntu 7.04 also works on Parallels.
There is a kernel issue when installing it which prevents it from seeing the optical drive. The work around around is to tell Parallels that you are installing Solaris. Once it is installed you can switch it to Other Linux.
It's running fine for me.
If I could get an unbranded laptop I could see myself using this on a full time basis.
