New Solution from Parallels for transitioning to Windows 7

Virtualization vendor, Parallels plans to release a new product to assist in the on-going transition from previous versions of Windows to Windows 7. Joining a long list of solutions already available from Microsoft and competing vendors such as VMWare, Parallels new technology will work on upgrading existing systems or new machines to assist with running old apps.

The company has quietly been working on a product that uses virtualization to ease the sometimes painful upgrade process going from Windows XP to Windows 7, CNET has learned. The new product, which will work for both those upgrading an existing machine to Windows 7 or those buying a new PC, uses virtualization to ensure that older programs can smoothly run on the new operating system.

The product is expected to be introduced shortly and available in the coming weeks, according to a source.

I have detailed my experiences with Windows Virtual PC with Windows XP Mode and it has worked quite well for me over the past 10 months for running a few legacy apps under Windows 7. As businesses ramp up their migrations to Windows 7, IT departments will be looking at alternative solutions to find which suits them best depending on their infrastructure. I say the more the merrier.
