So I’ve pulled down the latest Parallels software and thrown it on my Mac. My first action was to do a leap of faith and blow away the VM of Windows that I’ve had for some time and reinstall it as a Boot Camp’d partition.
Then, I fired up Parallels and told it to use the partition. Shockingly enough, it works… and it works well.
It’s scary for Microsoft when software has advanced so far that they can corral Windows into a window or a partition, either way… with little user effort. VERY little user effort.
