Questions & Answers

Once I switched from PC to Mac, I swore I'd never go back! But there were still a few programs that I needed Windows to run. I kept an old PC in my office to use these programs, but the more accustom I became to my Mac, the less I wanted to use my old clunky PC. When I heard about Parallels, I was all over it! It was easy to install and pretty intuitive. I don't know why I didn't realize this at first... but you do need a copy of Windows to install once you have Parallels on your Mac. But that's ok... anything to finally cut the cord with that old PC! I just needed time to learn the software!
I grew up with a Mac all through High School and College. I LOVED every Mac I owned. Then I got my first job out of college and was forced to use a PC. I complained bitterly, but ultimately was shown that outside of the creative design world, IBM and Microsoft had ensured that businesses were run on PCs and Mac were essentially relegated to the Creative Department. Parallels Desktop 8 For Mac License allows you to run Windows as an application on your Mac. It's like having the best of both possible worlds. You can run all of your Windows software native on your Mac. You don't have to "convert" all your PC files to Mac files. Windows Movie Maker, for example, runs perfectly fine on Parallels. It allows you to play and edit .WMV files and test them out inside a Windows environment.
Parallels allowed me to go back to using a Mac fulltime - not just for creative projects. It's a personal preference, but Macs are just more enjoyable to interact with and Parallels Desktop 8 For Mac License gives you the best of BOTH the Mac and Windows environments. Without it, there would still be applications you couldn't run and software purchases you'd have to duplicate when switching over to a Mac. Parallels is well worth the (small) investment. I highly recommend it.
