Parallels, the global leader in automation and virtualization software, announced today that it is offering VMware Fusion users a free trial of Parallels Desktop 5 for Mac and a limited-time opportunity to upgrade to a better and faster experience with Parallels Desktop 5 for Mac for only $39.99 until June 15th. Parallels’ No. 1 selling and award-winning software enables customers to seamlessly run Windows programs and Mac OS X applications side-by-side on an Apple computer without rebooting.

“Fusion 3 users have been waiting seven months for an update that VMware said would fix the problems their users had,” said Mary Starman, director of consumer marketing for Parallels. “We see the disappointment Fusion 3 users have had because VMware’s update still doesn’t deliver the performance that Parallels Desktop 5 for Mac customers have enjoyed since last year; that’s why we are making this special offer for VMware users to switch to Parallels.”

Parallels Desktop 5 brings superior performance that Fusion users will find appealing:

Fastest: Parallels still delivers the fastest performance, including graphics and overall virtual machine operations.

Smarter: Simply import your Fusion virtual machine into Parallels Desktop.

Powerful: Parallels is the only Autodesk certified, supported and recommended solution for Mac.

Parallels Desktop 5 for Mac is available to Fusion users for $39.99 until June 15th at www.parallels.com/best . It includes $175 worth of additional software for free: Parallels Internet Security 2009 by Kaspersky (1 year subscription); Acronis Disk Director Suite 10.0 (Disk Management); and Acronis True Image 11 Home (Backup and Recovery Solutions).
