I have been reading more and more on parallels, and I was hoping someone here could answer some questions about its coherence mode. Does it let you run applications for windows transparently through the MAC OS? As in, I insert the installation disk for office 2007, the setup menu comes up, I install it, and I get to put the word icons on the dock, I can open word/excel/whatever and just runt he applications without having to boot in to some sort of an emulation mode or whatever? I would appreciate some input from some people here. Thank you.
