Parallels announced that recently that its virtual machine software for Mac computers, Parallels Desktop 10 got very important update in the form of “experimental support” for Microsoft’s Windows 10 Technical Preview operating system. This software will allow users to test the latest version of Windows 10 TP without overwriting their existing Boot Camp or creating the new partition just for the system, but to safely install it on Parallels’ virtual machine.
This update will give you the ability to try the new preview of Microsoft Office for Windows 10, which includes the improved versions of Word, Excel and PowerPoint, and other new features of Windows 10.
