switch — the video

27 Apr

Update: Now with a soundtrack!

Just amazing stuff. Here’s a demo using VirtueDesktops to switch between OS X and Parallels with lots of eye candy. This is the solution I was hoping for back when the Intel announcement was made, only it plays much cooler than I anticipated.

Everything that I had an issue with before is now fixed in Beta5:

  • full-screen 1440×900 resoulution
  • guest can now see shared folders on the host
  • near-flawless mouse tracking (in the Parallels Tools, no tweaks needed
  • more than adequate performance

The only issue left is the ability to grow the drive-size past the original setting. There are a number of work-arounds for this, but I hope that a utility will be provided with the final release.

No need for Boot Camp any more—at least not for me. It’s time to buy pre-order a copy of Parallels Workstation.
