Because I do I fact have a boot camp partition, along with parallels, and I'll state this now, the windows in parallels is not the boot camp partition. I set it up like that just to see what would be better, so by experience, I do no what I'm talking about.
    I am a Virtualization Engineer, I work with with massive virtualized environments for a living and have been working for the leading Virtualization company for 18 months now, Degree in Computer Science, VCP4 and VCP5 Certified. I know what I'm talking about and I think that trumps our "tests".

    Even with bare-metal hypervisors there is a performance hit with running a VM versus natively. The hit is quite small using a hypervisor like ESXi or Hyper-V but it's there. Hardware Layer -> Virtualization Layer -> VM

    With hosted VMs running in VMware Fusion, Parallels Desktop, VMware Workstation etc, you are running a full OS on top of the Virtualization Application, on top of a full OS. There is a quite a large overhead. Hardware -> OS Layer -> Virtualization Layer -> VM
