Parallels 3.0 released

Parallels 3.0 (previous blog here) was released yesterday. Their download server must have been working hard because I had to leave the 80MB download running overnight. I've just installed it and tried out the DirectX using Google Earth as a comparison between the OS X and Parallels Windows versions and I'm impressed. It's obviously not as fast as the native version but very usable and works well in a coherence window.

I also like the integration of the XP Start menu/OS X Applications menu so you can fire up applications from either OS. I've not tried SmartSelect yet but I'm planning to use the new snap shot feature before installing Vista to see how that runs.
