Some of you may remember the russian team Parallels. These guys were hired by the german NetSys GmbH to develop a new server virtualization product to compete with VMware Workstation and Microsoft Virtual PC.
The product launched on January 2004 was called TwoOSTwo.
TwoOSTwo lived just 4 months then disappeared without any notice. Few weeks after it reapperead on May 2004 with the new name of SVISTA. Apparently the Parallels team was still developing TwoOSTwo/SVISTA, even without mention on their site.
Features Parallels Workstation 2.0 offers are very similar to ones of TwoOSTwo and SVISTA. Even the release number remember us where their previous works stopped.
Need I to suspect Parallels Workstation 2.0 is a fork of TwoOSTwo or SVISTA?
You can investigate from yourself since the product, actually in beta, is already available for download at this location: http://www.parallels.com/en/download
