OSNews, Generic OSes Parallels 3.0 has just been released. Parallels is about to get more competition, however. Virtualization specialist VMWare, which has been testing its own Fusion product for the Mac, plans to release a fourth beta on Friday, with a goal of releasing the product later this summer. Video of Fusion here.

Parallels 3.0 running smooth

After using Parallels since its first release, I wasn't much of a fan of their Dock integration. It just didn't feel right, or Mac like. I always felt I was using a sub-ordinate operating system and it's application integration felt klunky. However, version 3.0 has impressed me. The integration is smoother than ever. The Dock's application icons for Windows is truly first class, and it almost seems natural to leave the virtual machine's Windows running in the background just so my copy of Microsoft Office 2003 (for Windows) naturally opens up without delay when I double-click on a *.DOC or *.XLS file. Well-done! The upgrade was well-worth the price. Parallels has remained a stable platform for running Windows software on a Macintosh without the reboot.
