Parallels Desktop 4

Parallels Desktop will enable you to quickly and easily create virtual machines on most Intel-based Macs.

You can install a Windows, Linux, or other operating system in each of your virtual machines, and work with them and their applications side by side with your Mac OS X applications.

Built on Parallels' award-winning hypervisor-based virtualization technology, Parallels Desktop enables you to:
· create powerful and easy to use virtual machines
· use 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems inside your virtual machines
· use Windows and Linux applications side by side with your Mac OS X applications, without restarting your Mac
· concurrently work with the files and applications from your Mac and your virtual machine
· create Parallels virtual machines from physical computers and third-party virtual machines

To enhance your experience of running more than one operating system on your Mac, Parallels Desktop includes several utilities: Parallels Tools for seamless integration between your Mac and the virtual machine, Parallels Transporter for moving from PC to Mac, and Parallels Mounter for accessing your virtual machine's files and folders without starting it.
