Parallels recently released their Desktop for Mac virtual technology that enables an Intel Mac user to host Windows within a separate window on top of Mac OS X. Due to support for Intel's virtualisation technology, Windows is more than usable. It's fast. Better still, with the use of a virtual desktop manager, such as VirtueDesktops, you can open your virtual Windows on one screen and Mac OS X on another and quickly switch between the two desktops.
Now they've gone one stage further and added support for the new professional-level Mac Pro and experimental support for Windows Vista. This means you can test Windows Vista on your Mac, through virtual technology, without the need to upgrade or wipe your existing system. Simply host Vista in it's own window on top of OS X.
The Update Release Candidate for existing Parallels Desktop for Mac is available for both existing Parallels users and new users, through a 15-day trial. For more information, check the Update Release Candidate website.
