ParallelsSure enough, just as Apple announced a beta for Boot Camp, software that allows you to boot Windows on your Mac, Parallels announced Workstation 2.1 support for Intel Macs. Parallels is a virtualization software that allows you to run multiple operating system under OS X.

Parallels is the first virtualization software to support OS X. This is not software emulation like VirtualPC. Parallels is more like hardware emulation. As far as Windows will know, it’s running on a PC, when it fact it’s running in a window on OS X.

Finally you can keep your uber-slick OS X for all your Mac apps and just run the Windows apps you need in a little Window (that can go full screen).

Very very cool. Ordering my MacBook today. I’ll be sure and report on this Beta.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
