6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 15 comments

Parallels, Inc. announced yesterday its release of Parallels Desktop 3.0 for Mac, a completely new version of its award-winning software that enables Mac users to run Windows, Linux, and any other operating system at the same time as OS X on a single Mac desktop, without rebooting.

The release of Parallels Desktop 3.0 introduces over 50 new features, enhancements and improvements to the emulation software. The release is anchored by SmartSelect, a powerful new feature that lets users use any OS X or Windows application to open any file type, regardless of whether that file is on the Mac or Windows desktop. Other improvements include 3D Graphics support which allows for games such as Quake, Half-Life 2, and World of Warcraft, as well as work with complex Windows-only 3D CAD programs.
