Parallels to Improve 3D Support
9:03 AM | Cord Kruse | 6 comments

In a recent Macworld article, Parallels spokesman Ben Rudolph revealed that future plans for Parallels Desktop for Mac would include "fast 3D graphics support" as well as support for Windows Vista. Parallels Desktop allows users to run Windows XP, and other PC operating systems, at the same time as OS X through use of virtualization technology.

Rudolph also discussed the entrance of VMWare into the Mac market and the end of Virtual PC:

Monday saw two substantial news items of note to Mac users who want or need to run Windows and other X86-compatible operating systems on their Intel Macs. First, established enterprise virtualization technology developer VMWare announced plans to support the Mac, and Microsoft’s Mac Business Unit said it won’t develop its once-popular PC emulator Virtual PC to run on Intel-based Macs.

Both of these developments, said Parallel spokesman Ben Rudolph, point to Parallels’ dominant position as a virtual machine developer for Mac OS X.

“While we’re glad that VMWare is endorsing the Apple market and foresaw their entry as part of their focus on enterprise-class software and building products for highly technical users like software developers and testers, we believe that Desktop’s unmatched ease of use, consumer-focused feature set, as well as our strong backing from Apple and great retail presence in the Apple Stores, Staples, Office Depot and more, will keep us the number one choice for Apple users who want to run Windows on their Macs,” said Rudolph in a statement.
