Through Parallels Desktop, VMWare Fusion, VirtualBox and other virtual machine to install Windows on a Mac, it is possible to achieve both operating systems running simultaneously! Simply imagine is similar to the “PIP” function (of course, you may also like to run full-screen), the entire Windows system virtual machine as a common procedure to treat, you are free to switch virtual Windows system, the window is minimized or do any operation, will not host systems (OSX) affected.
Parallels Desktop virtual machine
Of course, because the virtual machine need to run the system on the basis of OSX, they would also run more Win a system, and therefore consume more system resources, performance is certainly not as a native Windows installation.
I should have installed Windows with Boot Camp or virtual machine?
