Every year, Parallels continues to impress me with its ability to add new features to the already feature rich Parallels Desktop for Mac product. Since the time I started my journey with using a Mac and therefore using (at the time) Parallels Desktop 5 for Mac for my Windows virtualisation needs, it was impressive even at the time. And every year without fail, Parallels Desktop just continue to keep getting better, not just from the perspective of having new features but also in improving its performance. And now, Parallels Desktop 9 for Mac has just released available first for existing customer upgrades and soon, for new customers.
With the recent release of both Parallels Desktop 8 for Mac and VMware Fusion 5, it’s time again to compare the two popular virtualization solutions for Mac and see which suits you better and if an upgrade from the previous versions worth considering.
