Parallels Desktop makes it easy to try Windows 10

By

Four of a kind can be a winning hand: Office Preview for Windows 10 running on Windows 10 Technical Preview under Parallels Desktop 10 on Mac OS X (10) is now 'experimentally' supported.

Given the company's track record, it comes as no surprise that "experimental" support for Windows 10 Technical Preview and Office Preview for Windows 10 has been added to Parallels Desktop 10, the popular virtualisation software for OS X that allows Windows and other operating systems to be run within the familiar Mac environment.

The Parallels Wizard now makes it easy to download Windows 10 Technical Preview and create a new virtual machine to run it without affecting existing VMs.

Once that's done, the Office Preview for Windows 10 can be obtained from the Windows Store.

This capability is part of Parallels Desktop for Mac 10.1.4 build 28883, which is the most recent release.

For those that have yet to purchase Parallels Desktop 10, a two-week free trial is available.

"Parallels Desktop enjoys very strong support among software developers and IT pros," said Parallels president Jack Zubarev.

"We are happy to deliver all the tools they need to quickly and safely test or run the latest OS and applications, now including the Windows 10 Technical Preview."

Parallels Desktop 10 costs $89.95. The Student Edition or upgrades from previous versions cost $54.95. There is also the Enterprise Edition with centralised administration and management.
