Parallels Workstation/Workstation Extreme products cancelled for Windows and Linux

Posted by essjae on April 9, 2013


I went over to Parallels tonight to search for some info and found that their website only mentions the Mac product.

I dug a little deeper in the support forums and found this sad little post:

Parallels Workstation – End of Purchase or Renewal Ability Notification

We are ending sales of our Parallels Workstation product lines in order to focus on some different market segments and products. Effective immediately, you will no longer be able to purchase new licenses or renew maintenance on the following products:

·         Parallels Workstation

·         Parallels Workstation Extreme

What does it mean for you?
* Parallels will no longer release patches or updates for these products;

* Parallels Support will not be able to escalate the requests to the development team for patches/fixes which are not covered in existing version/build of the product.

* If you have a personal Support Plan, please contact your Parallels sales representative or one of the Parallels offices.

I wanted Parallels and the Workstation product to succeed, but you can only ignore a product and customers for so long.
