Hello everybody

Some time ago, I partitioned the hard disk of my iMac and installed Parallels and Windows XP in order to be able to use Trados. It works fine. Now, I'd like to upgrade to OS X Lion but fear that there might be trouble running Parallels and Windows. Has anybody upgraded to Lion with Parallels, Windows and Trados installed on Snow Leopard? And have you had any problems running the programmes after the upgrade?

I am grateful for all your advice.

Hi Lydia

Lion is a mess. Personally I would advise you to stay with Snow Leopard. If you want to know why/how it's a mess, you could regularly read the Lion discussion forums, here:

https://discussions.apple.com/community/mac_os/mac_os_x_v10.7_lion

Some people refer to Lion as "Apple's Vista". Anyway, Lion is already out of date and will be followed next summer by Mountain Lion.

Snow Leopard is an excellent OS. I struggled with Lion for a month and found that it was slowing me down and interfering with my workflow, so I went back to Snow Leopard. Fortunately that was easy because I had a complete bootable clone of my hard drive, on an external FireWire drive.

If you're using a Mac, whatever version of the OS you have, you should always have a complete bootable clone, regularly updated.
