Intel Mac users have purchased nearly 100,000 copies of Parallels, according to the company.

GigaOM reports that the software - which lets Mac users boot up different operating systems side by side with Mac OS X - works flawlessly on an Intel iMac.

It observes that the 100,000 sales have been strong enough to "keep this tiny company going for a while," adding that the software is now available for sale through the Apple Store.

The company announced a new beta version of its software last week at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference.
