One of the latest trends in Mac Software is the bundling of applications for sale. Many an application, not made by apple, has been included on new macs over the years. I remember Nanosaur, Quicken NUE, Art Director toolkit among others. But now the software developers are are doing it with other parties outside of Apple. They have had various levels of success and controversy.
Well I have finally taken the Bundle plunge and I’m quite happy with the decision. The popular mac software site macupdate.com has a bundle at mupromo.com. This bundle includes:
Parallels Desktop 3.0.5584 – A popular virtualization software allowing you to run Windows or Linux on your Intel based mac.
