Mac OS X Yesterday, Parallels unveiled Parallels Desktop 4.0. The virtualisation tool for the Mac. Parallels allows you to run several operating systems 'on top' of Mac OS X, similar to VMware, Qemu, and other similar tools. Version 4.0 comes packed with new features and improvements.

I just got my first intel mac this week. I installed virtualbox 2.0 and have installed unbuntu, windows and opensolaris.

It works really well. I can't justify spending money on Parallels or Fusion.

Unless you really need the 3D support, virtualbox should meet your needs for free.
