Need to Run Windows on Your Mac? Parallels Has Got Your Back ~ Chris Pirillo

If you’ve ever wanted to retweet the link to a post but were afraid of what might happen, this will be the one to break you of that fear. Read on (or scroll to the bottom if that’s how you roll) to find out why!

So you’ve got a Mac, and you love it. OS X is pretty, it’s functional, and in spite of the ribbing you might get from your more Windows-centric friends, it’s the system that you happen to prefer. But sometimes, because of its popularity with the rest of the world (those savages!), you still find that you need to use Microsoft Windows for any number of reasons. Maybe you’ve got software from the time before you made the switch that you don’t want to buy all over again. Perhaps you want to check out a new game or application that’s been put out, but it’s got a blasted “Runs on Windows — OS X Coming Soon!” sticker prominently displayed on the box. Or maybe those aforementioned Windows-centric friends keep sending you files that require their operating system of choice.

So you can roll your eyes, curse through your teeth, and make the costly choice of buying a new PC to take up more precious space in your home office, or you can simply get a nifty little thing called Parallels that will allow you to run Windows on your operating system of choice.

It is nice to have such choices, right?

And Parallels won’t confine you to making the choice of running Windows on your Mac. It’ll also allow you to run Linux, Google Chrome OS, and/or several other operating systems on your Mac if you so desire. How’s that for having choices?
