Parallels Gains More Mac Power

Parallels, formerly SWsoft, just enhanced its hypervisor for Macs that lets these Cupertino beauties run Windows and Linux.

Parallels is a feisty and interesting company, with two lines of server virtualization tools and some cool desktop action, as well. I profiled it a while back here.
