Parallels Workstation 2.1

A slick new switching solution allows users to easily move between operating systems when using Parallels Workstation 2.1, a virtualization software for Intel-based Macs that allows users to run Windows without having to restart their machines. Virtue is an open-source application offering the ability to switch between operating systems using a cube-like interface. The developer of Virtue has stepped forward, offering Parallels the option of incorporating his code into its virtualization software. In addition, users note that Parallels been working hard to fix bugs and optimization in the virtualization software. Beta 4 of Parallels Workstation 2.1 for Mac OS X fixes several bugs for greater stability as well as offers a full screen mode, dual-monitor support, improved real CD/DVD support, an enhanced user interface, and improved sound support -- including a fix for Windows 2000 guest OS. The latest beta also repairs networking kernel panics, bridged networking issues, WiFi networking issues, and bugs encountered when entering "Sleep" mode when a virtual machine is running. Parallels Workstation 2.1 is available for pre-order for $40.
