Coherence mode

February 12th, 2007

I’m a Mac user by heart (and this is something, coming from years of Windows software development and excitement and even doing technical beta testing for Windows 95 all through XP). But there are moments when you still want to use Windows. For better or worse: it just has more software.

One really great software that I’d love to have on the Mac is Live Writer (beta) from Microsoft. It makes blogging a real fun event. And with Parallels’ virtualization software it integrates beautifully into the whole Mac experience. You should especially check out their new integration mode: ‘Coherence mode’. It makes the Windows desktop transparent, gets rid of the taskbar and background icons and integrates windows apps into the Mac dock. Alltogether it gives the seeming impression of running a Windows app natively in Mac OS X.
