It’s the new version of Virtual PC – Virtual PC 2007. I’ve been using the beta for awhile now, with very happy results. Some examples I’ve seen:
- Virtual guest installations of Windows Vista work much better
- Virtual PC itself performs better on a Vista Host
- And (this is the big one), Virtual PC 2007 guests can take advantage of virtualization optimization support in newer CPUs.
All around, this is a great release for people like me who learn, teach, webcast, and pretty much have a virtual machine or two running at all times.
