I bought Parallels for our iMac some time ago so that Kathy and the kids could run things associated with school and work that had to be in a Windows environment. Mainly older school-based systems that required Explorer. We also needed to run Publisher sometimes.
I needed to run Parallels to diagnose a three month old clicking Seagate GoFlex 2TB USB drive. The diagnostics software only runs on Windows and is a required step before returning the drive for replacement. This continues a trend with external USB drives of about a 1 in 3 failure. It is really disappointing, and I’ve experienced it with Seagate, Western Digital, and LaCie.
Anyhow, fired up Parallels and found Claire had changed the Windows desktop. A much better version than the standard Windows desktop if I may say so myself! She did this in November of 2008 based on the graphic’s file date. Pretty good trick, creating and replacing the Windows desktop for a kid raised on Macs.
