Parallels Desktop 6 shows up on shelves

updated 09:30 am EDT, Mon September 6, 2010

Media asked to pull early details

The next version Parallels' Mac virtualization software, Desktop 6, is already appearing on store shelves, a report notes. A photo is claimed to show two editions at a Fry's Electronics in Roseville, California. One is a standard version, while the other is a special "Switch to Mac" edition designed to make it easier to migrate from a Windows PC.

Despite at least one store having Desktop 6 in stock, Parallels has not released official product information. Some early details were circulated amongst the media, but quickly taken down following demands. Much of the upgrade's emphasis is rumored to be on speed however, for instance by making graphics rendering up to twice as fast. It should also support Spotlight, Spaces and Expose.

    Every update claims speed improvements. I wonder if they have any actual benchmarks to back that claim up.

    Seriously, how many different releases of these things need there be? Parallels 1 runs Windows. Why do I need 6?
