Parallels Runs Windows Without Rebooting
by , 5:00 PM EDT, April 6th, 2006
Parallels on Thursday released the Beta version of Parallels Workstation, which enables Intel Macs to run Windows inside a Mac OS X window, eliminating the rebooting required by Boot Camp. MacCentral's Peter Cohen said that the solution supports various x86-based operating systems, including UNIX, Linux and various types of Windows.
Mr. Cohen said that Parallels Workstation makes use of virtualization technology built into Intel's Core Duo processors. Unlike slow, software-based emulators, Parallels Workstation splits the processor's attention between different operating systems, enabling each one to run off the hardware. The reporter said that a Parallels company representative noted that the solution is "close to near-native" in performance.
When the final version of Parallels Workstation is released, it will cost US$49 to register. Each operating system loaded on the computer must be purchased separately, of course. Mac OS X v10.4.4 is required.
