UK distributor Purple Rage is already shipping Parallels Desktop 2.2 for Mac.

This version of the software works with any Intel-Mac. It includes Windows Vista and improved USB support. The update shipped online last week.

Parallels Desktop lets Intel Macs run Windows XP - or any other operating system - simultaneously in isolated "virtual machines". The software allows users to work within their favourite environent while also being able to drop into another operating system to engage in specific tasks.

Purple Rage was appointed as UK distributor for the innovative software in August 2006.
