Works like a breeze!

By TVBlueNote | Parallels Desktop 9 for Mac | May 1st, 2014

I have shown several friends that are in the same camp as me.  We want to get away from our PCs and transition to the Mac OS, but there are just some things we still like doing on our PCs. Parallels has COMPLETELY bridged the gap.  It truly works like a breeze! You are effortlessly in one environment or the other. I would and have already highly recommended this product.

Parallels Desktop 9 for Mac gets update for host support with Yosemite!

Yesterday Apple released Yosemite Developer Preview 3 and Parallels responded with an update to Parallels Desktop 9 for Mac that allows you to run Parallels Desktop 9 on Yosemite.  There are several notable features turned on such as iCloud Drive, Handoff, and Phone, a feature allowing you to make and receive phone calls right on your Mac even if your phone is in the other room!

Ready to get the update? If you are an existing Parallels Desktop 9 user, go up to the Parallels Desktop menu and click “Check for Updates”, to see if you have the most recent version. The program will automatically prompt you to update Parallels Desktop 9. If you are not currently a Parallels Desktop 9 for Mac user, you can take advantage of a free 14-day trial, which will be the most recent version. Watch Skeeter Harris, Tech Evangelist from Mac Village Media, walk you through getting the update and installing Parallels Desktop 9 on Yosemite in the video below.

Hands down, the best solution for today's mix of technology. Being able to use OSX and Windows seamlessly without having to reboot is a dream come true. And not only that, the iPad access is incredible. I would recommend this product to anyone that has the need for multiple operating systems, or just wants to dabble in other OS's.
