Parallels Desktop is an application that enables you to use Windows and Linux operating systems and applications on Macintosh devices, along with the Mac OS X. The application is created using desktop virtualization– a software application based upon Intel VT-x modern technology that develops a thorough simulated environment by virtualizing both software and hardware of the device it is made use of.
The initial Parallels software application was released in June 2006 with the name of Parallels Workstation but was later on renamed as Parallels Desktop for Mac. This was because of the underwhelming reaction from the Mac online community, with many saying that the name makes the software application sound like a Windows product as opposed to Mac’s.
The most effective attribute of Parallels for Mac is that the software is on a regular basis upgraded. Currently, there are 14 versions of Parallels on Mac offered, with Parallels Desktop 16.5 for Mac being the latest– released in 2021.
