This name was not well received within the Mac community, where some felt that the name, particularly the term “workstation,” evoked the aesthetics of a Windows product.Parallels agreed: “Since we've got a great Mac product, we should make it look and sound like a Mac product...”, it was therefore renamed ‘Parallels Desktop for Mac’.You can also decompress the zip archive from the command line with: While this can provide some protection on a per-file or folder basis, it’s always a good idea to password protect the Mac in general with a login requirement on system boot, wake from sleep, and waking from the screen saver.Keep in mind that password protected zip files are not encrypted with some super strong deep encryption method, so if you want a more secure file encryption, you may want to pass a regular zip file through open SSL encryption with des3 or something similar to really make the file secure.Despite being created at the command line, you do not need to unzip the file from the terminal, it can be expanded from the Mac OS X Finder or within Windows using standard unzipping apps.Just double click on the file, then enter the password, and it will decompress.
Support for Direct X 8.1 and Open GL A new feature called Smart Select offers cross OS file and application integration by allowing the user to open Windows files with Mac OS X programs and vice versa.
Creating a password protected zip file is easy in Mac OS X and does not require any add-ons or downloads.
Instead, use the zip utility that is bundled with all Macs.
Parallels Desktop for Mac is a hardware emulation virtualization software, using hypervisor technology that works by mapping the host computer’s hardware resources directly to the virtual machine’s resources.
Each virtual machine thus operates identically to a standalone computer, with virtually all the resources of a physical computer.
