Running Windows, Linux And Mac Operating Systems

Avanquest UK has launched a virtual desktop product (created by Parallels Inc) that’ll allow you to run different operating systems and applications alongside Mac OS. Intel processor-based Apple Macs will therefore be able to run Windows, Linux and most other applications in Mac OS X without needing to reboot. Files will be shareable between Windows XP/2000 and Mac OS X by just copying and pasting them, which is useful.

Desktop for Mac will also come with Parallels’ Compressor, which allows Windows 2000, 2003 and XP virtual machines’ hard drive space to be reduced by 50% of more, so that Desktop for Mac isn’t constrained by memory and space requirements.
