The useful bit for Virtual PC users is in the last bullet point.
Parallels Desktop for Mac Update RC released
Parallels announced that its Update Release Candidate (RC)
for the Parallels Desktop for Mac, released January 11, has
been named "Best in Show" at Macworld Expo in San Francisco.
New features in version 2.0 include:
- better USB 2.0 support
- improved Drag and Drop
- "Coherence," a new view mode that lets users
running Intel-powered Macs to run Windows
applications directly on their Mac
- a new "Transporter" feature that enables
entire Windows machines, as well as Virtual PC
and VMware Workstation virtual machine images
to be migrated to a Parallels virtual machine
running on the Mac, without having to reinstall
the operating system or any applications.
Parallels Desktop for Mac is priced at US$79.99.
BUT, Virtual PC users should be aware that if your version came with a
version of Windows in the box, then it is actually illegal in the terms
of the software agreement to use that operating system installed on
your Virtual PC "hard drive" with ANY other product.
Hopefully helping harassed humans happily handle handiwork hardships ;o)
