“Is Parallels Desktop compatible with the new Mac Pro tower? Not yet. The new Mac Pros have a different CPU model, and work with a specifically optimized OS X kernel. It is not difficult to make Parallels compatible with either of these, but it does take a bit of time. We should have a compatible build very soon,” Benjamin Rudolph, one of Parallels first employees and the leader of Parallels’ marketing and business development programs, blogs for Parallels.
Rudolph wrotes yesterday, “‘Very soon’ sounds like mrketing-ese for ‘we’ll have something someday.’ When I say very soon, I mean very soon. Like within the next few days.”
“If you’re signed up to receive Parallels news, you’ll get an email from us with instructions on how and where to get the build. Not signed up? Just enter your email address on the main Parallels home page and you’ll be good to go,” Rudolph reports. “All in all, please keep in mind that the Mac Pro was only announced earlier this month! We started work on them within 24 hours of the announcement, and we’re continuing to work around the clock (really…our developers are working in shifts and our Mac Pros are always on) to get this ready for you.”
