To follow up on the issues addressed in Craig Poff’s guest post yesterday, the Washington Post published an article last week that takes a look at the similarities and features of the big three virtualization programs: Apple’s BootCamp, Parallels Desktop for Mac, and CodeWeavers’ CrossOver Mac. After its in-depth analysis, the article concludes: "For somebody who needs to run only one or two Windows programs,
CrossOver can be a cheap, simple solution. Otherwise, Parallels easily
justifies its higher cost and system requirements."
Better yet, the article concludes by saying that "Many new Mac
users, however, may discover they don’t need to run Windows programs
after all — for just about any task imaginable, a good Mac program can
be found. The greatest feature of software like Parallels and CrossOver
may be their existence alone. They constitute a cheap, easily exercised
insurance policy that frees people to buy the computer they want
without worry." You can read the whole article by clicking HERE.
