Apple started out OS X with annual releases of new versions, but then settled into an upgrade every two years up until the release of Mountain Lion almost exactly one year after Lion came out. Here we stand, a bit over a year later, expectantly waiting for OS X Mavericks to come out. Everyone’s not waiting, though, and both the VMware Fusion and Parallels teams have just released their latest virtualization offerings for the Mac that both feature Mavericks support among other new features.

Parallels has released an annual upgrade ever year since it was released, but VMware tended more towards the 2 year mark between major releases. Now, though, both companies are releasing new versions in lockstep with new versions of OS X, and if you are serious about running Linux or Windows on your Mac, you’ll be upgrading both OS X and your virtualization tool of choice each year. And this year, you’ve got more choices than ever as both apps are trying harder to appeal to casual users and the more advanced needs of IT teams.

We just closed our giveaway — congrats to our winners, Adam and Jeff!

There’s been a ton of great bundles already this summer, but the best one yet just might be StackSocial’s Summer 2013 Mac Bundle. It’s got tons of great apps that we’d recommend any day: Parallels Desktop 8 to run other OSes on your Mac, SnagIt to capture and tweak screenshots like a pro, Typinator to keep you from wearing out your keyboard and fingers typing too much, Boom to make your MacBook’s speakers loud enough to watch a movie with friends, ColorStrokes to make your photos even more special, and more for just $49.99. That’s quite a steal.

If you’ve been wanting those apps, we’ve got the perfect chance for you, since we’ve got two copies of the full bundle to giveaway to our readers. And, even if you go ahead and buy a copy of the bundle today (or already bought a copy), you’ll get your full purchase refunded if you win. How’s that for an awesome giveaway?
