Parallels with Expression

Microsoft is reportedly strengthening its relationship with Parallels, and will offer Parallels Desktop for Mac for users who purchase a Microsoft Expression Professional Subscription. According to InfoWorld, this allows customers to run the full studio suite, rather than just Expression Media 2, which ships mid-May, which is also bundled with future versions of Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac Special Media Editions. A Microsoft Expression Professional Subscription will be available in June for $1000.

"Including Parallels Desktop for Mac in the Microsoft Expression Subscription gives designers a valuable tool for working across platforms," said Serguei Beloussov, CEO of Parallels. "It is further evidence of the productivity benefits that our virtualization software offers customers, and strengthens our ongoing partnership with Microsoft."

The Microsoft Expression Professional Subscription also includes Expression Studiom Visual Studio 2008 Standard, Office 2007 Standard, Windows XP SP2, Windows Vista Business Edition, and pre-configured virtualized server environments.
