I still look back fondly on WordPerfect when they were independent and located in Orem, Utah. You could call them for phone support and they never asked if you were a legal user. They just answered you question with competence and good humor.
The closest to that today is Parallels. I have had two issues with one of Parallels and in both cases they not only supported me, but spent, literally, almost two hours on the phone doing a screen sharing.
I don't know if you need a way to run Windows on your Mac, but if you do, consider them.
2. I use VMWare and love it. I have had Win7, Windows Server 2008 running on my Mac.
I just re-subscribed to Visual Studio with MSDN and will be running Server 2012. I am a developer and prefer only Apple hardware. VMWare allows me to use my Mac to do run Windows software for development purposes only.
