hilarious. it works courtesy of Parallels
I’m thinking of doing the same. Any reason for choosing Parallels over BootCamp?
it’s on the fly instead of booting into a single OS. I haven’t tried installing any windows specific s/w (other than Office) yet, but I don’t imagine it to be too great with a big program like AutoCAD or SolidWorks, etc.
Bootcamp, you can run the OS properly, Parallels simply running an OS behind an OS.
there’s a big difference between those application.
haha nice note iMaL!
I like the background where is it from?
seth.rubenstein – this is a background from flickr user neilio.
his post inspired me to install XP on top of the same background!
Unless you want to play games or do serious graphics work, parallels works great. It’s not running an OS behind an OS, it’s running a virtual machine. Semantics I guess. But it works nice, with no rebooting required.
Right now I have VS.NET 2005 running in Parallels and I’m able to still use the mac as the host and use all my mac apps… what’s not to love?
By the way, parallels uses the VT-x hardware virtualization support built into the Core processors, so the performance is very good. Much, much better than emulation solutions like Virtual PC which are very slow.
