With the Parallels brand, you need not compromising anything. You can unleash the power and full potential of operating systems and applications. Both the Parallels 6 and Parallels 7 are hardware emulation virtualization software that live up to such promises, utilizing the hypervisor technology to map out the resources of the host computer’s hardware directly into the virtual machine’s resources.
If you were made to choose between the two however, which would you likely go for? To start with, the Parallels Desktop 6 can be best described as a system that is simply faster and smarter than ever, complete with 80 newly enhanced features. From productivity software capabilities all the way down to dynamic PC–only games, the Parallels Desktop 6 has everything covered for you.
The Parallels Desktop 6 is among the best choices that customers all over the world have because of its capability to run various Windows application on a Mac platform seamlessly, and you wouldn’t have to worry about rebooting. The graphics intensive programs presented are a total breeze with the all-new enhanced DirectX functionality.
If you are always on the go, you can opt to access all your Windows programs remotely from your iPhone or iPad using the Parallels Mobile applications.
If you have a heart for the Mac OS, you can simply turn your Windows environment down even while working with its applications. Both Mac and Windows applications can run side-by-side in peace without having to compromise anything. Parallels Desktop 6 steadily improves its already-stellar product enhancements via its full 63-bit implementation that introduces enhanced application performance, and expanding the PC Hardware support with its ease-of-use features. Parallels Desktop 6 will continue to set the standards and concepts for virtualization software, pushing the gap between other virtualization software a notch higher.
Then the world was introduced to the Parallels 7 system. It is a whole new world compared to what the Parallels Desktop 6 has accomplished so far. It not only integrates with various “Lion” features (full-screen applications and the Launchpad), the brains behind Parallels also tweaked the code to enhance better performance in the basics of virtualization application and graphics performance. These give users a great advantage with fast and equally reliable easy-to-use virtualization applications.
The Parallels Desktop 7 for the Mac system has all the usual things in the minimum set requirements, but is other interesting caveats are what set out this particular virtualization application from others. It all depends on how you will be using the application of course.
The Parallels Desktop 7 also adds support when running the OS X Lion and the OS X Lion server as guest OS. Before you can enjoy this feature though, you have to run the OS X Lion first as your host OS for the Parallels system. This means you will not be able to use the Parallels 7 if you want to try out the Lion system while running the Leopard or the Snow Leopard operating systems.
Now that you have the best of both worlds, make up your own mind. Parallels 6 vs Parallels 7, what would it be?
