I wrote a little PDF book for O'Reilly Media last summer (2006) titled Windows for Intel Macs. This Short Cuts series book was written with a focus on Mac users who also need to or want to run Microsoft Windows on an Intel based Mac running either Apple Boot Camp (dual boot) or Parallels Desktop for Mac (virtualization).
It is amazing how much has changed since the book was released last August. Microsoft released Windows Vista to replace XP. Parallels went from version 1 to version 3 (which was released just this week). Apple released a couple of minor point releases of Boot Camp (1.3 is the current release). But, I'm not going to talk much about that since I prefer virtualized platforms vs. dual-boot.
The old book (10 months is apparently forever in computer time) is still in the Short Cuts Best Selling list. But, with all the changes in both Parallels Desktop for Mac and Windows Vista, I thought I'd provide some updates to the book's topic area in this blog. I don't know how regularly I'll post Parallels/Vista information here. But, I'll try to post at least a couple of items per week for the next month or two.
