Parallels Starts Its Own Apple Switch Campaign - Bits Blog - NYTimes.com

The latest in virtualization: user videos and reference cards.  See the full article for background on Parallels and its founder.

But the heart of the switching software revolves around some more basic things. For one, Parallels has video tutorials on how to use a Mac and how to find Windows-type functions on a Mac. I’ve seen the videos in action, and they’re pretty slick as far as these types of tutorials go. The videos try to keep up with your learning curve by presenting fairly detailed menus that let you skip around to various parts of lessons.

To complement the videos, there’s also a reference card that provides common Windows and Mac commands. And, as you might expect, Parallels ships a cable with the software for shuffling files over from a PC to a Mac.
