Parallels and the Mac: Friendly Frankenstein

So I've been working with Parallels Desktop for Mac lately and it's a rather nice package. It does most of the things you'd want and does them well. Today I discovered that the full-screen mode is just a big window with no border or with the border outside the visible region of the display. As a result, you can Cmd-tab to other Mac applications and the full-screen Windows VM is still there. You can even bring up Expose and Dashboard.

It's quite the strange sight.
