HI All,

I am looking for an application that works as well as Parallels works on MAC. I have tried Wine and it doesn't seem to work nearly as well. Does anyone have any suggestions, I am all ears?

Have a good day.

Virtualbox does virtualization and is free

+1 to that! VB is a great virtualization tool that even allows seamless integration of guest OS into Host OS at the same time. Check it out. If you need help, post back here.

The PUEL version supports a few features that the OSE version (From the repositories) does not, like USB and so forth. http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads

You can download it here.

Don't know how parallels works, but VB requires you to INSTALL a complete MS Windows OS. In terms of current MS Windows OSs, that requires both an installation DVD and a valid license.

What you tried already (Wine) does not require either of these.

You could try CodeWeaver's commercial version of Wine know as Crossover. They have a time-limited trial you can download and install for free.
