Software allowing Mac users to run
Windows applications without having to reboot their computers is being taken up
more and more in workplaces, according to publishers Parallels.
Releasing the new Parallels
Desktop 6 for Mac Enterprise Edition, Parallels has said more than 50% of the
Fortune Global 200 companies have adopted its technology.
The software is particularly
popular among design-oriented firms, Parallels says, with creative departments,
who traditionally lean towards Macs, also able to run the Windows-based
applications used in other departments.
The firm says a recent survey
found 58% of workers said their employers would allow them to choose between a
Mac or a PC for their work computer. When asked to choose the most useful
computer for work, 53% chose a Mac running Windows applications.
