Parallels Workstation: un nuovo concorrente per Virtual PC/VMware

Anche se sono pieno come un uovo... questa dovevo per forza segnalarla... non l'ho provata, vi do solo il link e torno a Darth Powerpoint...

I hadn't seen this in any of the blogs I monitor, so I thought I should share.  Parallels, Inc. has released their Parallels Workstation product.  This is a complete virtualization solution much like Virtual PC, and VMWare (I know there are others). 

There are a couple cool things.  They boast that they are the first virtualization app that includes Hypervisor technology.  This is supposed to make things perform a bit better.  From my observation it does appear to work pretty fast (no worse than running another app on my laptop... I am still testing check back here later for more detail).

The other very important thing to mention is price.  Parallels Workstation is $49!  I believe this is a lot cheaper than Virtual PC or VMWare (although VMware does have the free VMPlayer that can be manipulated --by hand-- to let you create new virtuals). 

You can also get a 45-day trial of Parallels Workstation at their web site.  I own Virtual PC, and I may actually spring for a license of this depending on the results of my testing (which I'll post here).
