Parallels’ No. 1 selling and award-winning software enables customers to seamlessly run Windows programs and Mac OS X applications side-by-side on an Apple computer without rebooting.
“Fusion 3 users have been waiting seven months for an update that VMware said would fix the problems their users had,” said Mary Starman, director of consumer marketing for Parallels. “We see the disappointment Fusion 3 users have had because VMware’s update still doesn’t deliver the performance that Parallels Desktop 5 for Mac customers have enjoyed since last year; that’s why we are making this special offer for VMware users to switch to Parallels.”
Parallels Desktop 5 brings superior performance that Fusion users will find appealing:
Fastest: Parallels still delivers the fastest performance, including graphics and overall virtual machine operations.
Smarter: Simply import your Fusion virtual machine into Parallels Desktop.
Powerful: Parallels is the only Autodesk certified, supported and recommended solution for Mac.
