    Parallels Desktop…

     Posted in Technology at 14:57 on Wednesday, February 24th, 2010 by Mr. Rant

    Basically if you have a mac and want to use specific programs which aren’t supported by you need a work around, and the simplest way I’ve found to this is to run Parallels Desktop.  It costs a bit of money to buy but it’s worth it.  The current cost direct from Parallels themselves is £59.99 which is very reasonable considering it’s power.

    What I do is use the bootcamped partition of XP I have already installed and I can run all the programs in Coherence Mode – This bassically allows you to launch the windows as if they were running under well… Windows.  I’m still in my 14 day trial and I love it so much I will be buying it as soon as the trial comes to an end.

    Get parallels, run windows, enjoy… that’s how easy it is to use.
