Highlights from 10 Years of Parallels Desktop for Mac:

“In May of 2006 Apple introduced Boot Camp® so Mac users could run Windows—but I couldn’t run both at the same time so I couldn’t copy, cut and paste between Windows and OS X apps. I purchased Parallels Desktop for Mac as soon as it came out because it let me simultaneously run Windows and OS X on my Mac and solved my problem. The innovations and new features that followed—from Coherence which lets me use Windows apps in my OS X environment with Mac gestures, to enabling Microsoft’s personal assistant Cortana to work with my Mac apps—have been pure genius.” Paul Von Hout, Seattle, WA – Customer since June 2006.
