Another option is CrossOver Mac - run Windows apps without requiring a Windows OS.
I prefer is over Parallels (I own both).
Try the free CrossOver Mac trial software before deciding.
I'm running Parallels Desktop 10 for Mac now. I haven't used Fusion for a long time. I change VM Fusion to Parallels just due to the interface if i remember correctly. I like its interface and UI.Is there a clear winner between the two? VMware Fusion or Parallels? In general and specifically with their respective latest versions, Fusion 8 / Parallels 11? Want to run Windows 7 and/or 10 on my new iMac.
"I started withParallels, then moved to VM Fusion and haven't looked back. I agree the support seems better and have had little/no problems with VM."
Me too. Also, Fusion hasn't been as bad as Parallels on update costs. Which is important to me.
