Parallels, VMware, CodeWeavers Release Virtualization Betas
4:50 PM | IMG News | 5 comments

Parallels has released a new beta of Parallels Desktop, a virtualization software enabling Windows to run on a Mac without rebooting. The new version (Build 3106) provides more functionality such as tabbing out, multiple monitor support, and USB 2.0 support.

Additionally, VMware has released its own virtualization software codenamed Fusion. This is the first beta release from VMware and features the ability to use Windows applications without rebooting, access to disc media, and more.

At this time, 3D gaming is not possible with these two offerings. However, they are said to be working towards gaming compatibility.

A third option called CrossOver from CodeWeavers also has new betas available. The company has released two release candidates over the holiday break, fixing several application issues, including instances of Half Life 2 crashing. For more information, check out the announcements in their forums.
