Neither Parallels Desktop nor VMWare Fusion are free, thus you have to look at VirtualBox, which is free and should satisfy your Windows installing needs.

Parallels vs Fusion is an age old question, that's been asked numerous times. There is no better application but rather which one you like, i.e., personal preference.

Both cost money, both have their own set of advantages and disadvantages.

I like fusion because its a more stable product with great support.

Looking for free excludes these two programs and your only option is VirtualBox, less feature rich then the other two but the price is right.
