Windows on the Mac Making Moves Toward Totally Transparent Integration

ParallelsMacs with Intel chips have been progressing toward total two-platform (Windows and Mac OS) integration on one desktop. Unfortunately, Apple’s BootCamp requires you to reboot.

Parallels Desktop 3.0 for Mac is just released and offers significant new features that really seem to enable a legitimate, simultaneous two-platform environment. Way cool! Now I just need to time to buy and install Windows XP on my Intel Mac and then to get Parallels going. As I like to say, “Time, not space, is the final frontier.” 😉

Anyway, The NYTimes’ David Pogue has written a pretty definitive review of the new version of Parallels Desktop for Mac including tests using powerful Windows voice recognition software. Bottom line, use Windows XP, not Vista!
