NEW YORK (TheStreet) --Parallels is a Bellevue, WA-based technology company offering software that allows customers to run Microsoft's (MSFT) - Get Report Windows software on an Apple (AAPL) computer. Its latest version boasts the capability to run Windows 10 on a Mac.
The Verge executive editor Walt Mossberg, who has tested the functionality of Parallels' newest software that allows users to run Windows 10 on a Mac, appeared on Wednesday's "Squawk Alley" on CNBC to discuss his takeaways.
"This was Windows 10 running on a three and half-year-old MacBook Air, not even the most powerful Mac laptop and it was running fine. So if it did that, I imagine it must be running fine on a lot of three and half year old, or four and half year old specially built PCs," Mossberg said.
Mossberg commented on whether the integration of Windows operating system on a Mac computer stands to benefit Apple or Microsoft more.
"Obviously it helps Microsoft in that people have to buy a copy of Windows. So they get that, but the main point here is to keep you using a Mac and to not feel like you're missing anything if your company says we have to use this thing we wrote in-house, and it only works on Windows," he explained.
