> Hello, WR-L-ers,
> I know that this has been discussed a lot on this list, but Iâve got a few

> 1. If I buy a product such as Parallels (https://www.amazon.com/
> UTF8&qid=1489594900&sr=8-1&keywords=parallels), I still need to purchase
> Windows and install it, right? (That is, the Parallels software doesnât
> include the Windows OS?)
> 2. Whatâs the difference in ordering Parallels âMacâ vs. Parallels âMack
> key Cardâ? Both are downloads, so I donât understand why the Key Card is
> $33 less?
> 3. I know that there are free/OS VMs available, and Iâm assuming that
> theyâre a little trickier to configure, or donât have the performance, or
> 4. Anything else I should research/consider?
