Parallels has announced that Parallels Desktop for Mac has sold more than one million copies.
"Parallels Desktop not only broke down the barrier between the Mac and PC worlds, it also broke down the barrier that kept desktop virtualization from becoming a mainstream technology for consumers and professional users," said Serguei Beloussov, CEO. "We will continue innovating to extend our position as the desktop virtualization leader and provide our users with the fastest, easiest and most seamless solution available."
The award-winning software is the first product ever to enable Mac users to run Windows, Linux or any other operating system and their critical applications at the same time as Mac OS X on any Intel-powered Apple computer.
Parallels Desktop for Mac’s success has quickly made Parallels the No. 1 company in desktop virtualization. Today, the software is available in 10 languages—Chinese, Czech, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, and Spanish.
Parallels Desktop 3.0 for Mac sells for $80. A 15-day trial is available here.

Editor's note: One-million copies of an app for running 'doze, etc on OS X? That's quite a few switchers.
The impulse purchase value for switchers is obvious, but I'm wondering how many actually use Parallels since moving to the Mac?
