OSNews, Generic OSes Parallels is just weeks away from releasing version 3.0 of its Mac virtualisation suite, beating VMWare to an offering with 3D GPU emulation built-in. Parallels says high-end Windows games will now be playable within a virtual machine There are some other features included too, like the ability to associate any file type in Mac OS X to open in a Windows app, and vice versa.

can do now Direct X 8.x then why is it better then VMWAre Fusion that can do DX 8.1 as well? I am using Fusion simply because it allows me to move my virtual machines from my server to my MBP when I travel and then back to the server when I am home. This way I always have my working Virtual Machines with me. Fusion has most of the Parallels features already and allows you to open multiple Virtual machines at the same time which, last time I checked was nearly impossible on Parallels. Fusion is, as of now, Free so a perfect compliment to the free VMWare server.
So why is this such a big deal? I don't get it.
