Parallels Desktop: Coherence rules


parallels desktop for mac os, now with coherence
I took a screenshot of my Mac Pro desktop a few minutes ago. See anything weird about it? That's right: there are Windows apps running along side Mac apps! The most recent build of the new Parallels Desktop for Mac features Coherence, a feature that allows you to free Windows apps from the constraints of a virtual OS window. I also tested drag 'n drop between windows (copying files), and it worked without any problems.

Before today, I was afraid to try Coherence because the product is still in beta, but for some reason was infused with a jolt of courage today while using Windows apps (for increased productivity -- some of them are just better!).

Now I can run my two favorite Windows apps (BreezeBrowser and Beyond Compare 2) without having to work within a virtual OS window.
