Q&A with the Parrallels CEO....

Linux.com has an interesting interview with the CEO of Parrallels.  The story of Parrallels support for Linux is compelling one for other companies thinking about supporting Linux.  When you look at how good the software it is still hard to imagine that the company and software has only been around since 2000.  They have had a bumpy road but things sound like the are improving.
