Months after having been given a key to activate Parallels I finally decided to give it a shot. I acquired a copy of Vista and installed it on Marbles, my macbook. I have to say right out of the gate I’m rather impressed! Vista runs decently well in a virtual machine, and I can run Outlook 2007 in coherence mode (where the Vista desktop slides away leaving your Windows applications on OS X desktop alongside the rest of my mac apps) – it’s a very zen experience and will make doing email from home a much more pleasant experience.
Bravo Parallels for the most polished and full feature emulation package I’ve ever seen – from installing Vista automatically for me from the DVD to providing slick OS X to Windows integration and hardware sharing features I’m impressed end to end.
