With VMWare Fusion now free for non-commercial use, I'm really not sure why you'd buy Parallels, unless you really like the seamless integration features, which do work a little better in Parallels than VMWare (although I find them annoying overall). Performance between the two is more-or-less the same.

(If you're still using Virtualbox though, stop that. You're seriously missing out...)

I couldn't see anything major that Fantastical does that the built-in Calendar from MacOS doesn't already do.

If you have a laptop and dekstop you have to buy 2 licenses or remove from one and add to the second.
Impossible to use on both, it's better and easier to use VMware if you use multiple systems.

These are the initial twitches of the death throes of Parallels....
I'm interested in and excited for the next generation of emulation from newer, less monolithic publishers.
