  • Why anyone would use a virtual machine?

    Windows 7 is so great that you should defenetely install them on a physical machine ;-).

  • Totally agree, Kostas ! I received so many positive feedback that I really need to install it on a clean machine !!

  • I use it on virtual machine because not all drivers etc are supported in win 7 yet...

  • I upgraded over a Vista Ultimate and everything worked smoothly. No issues, no problems whatsoever, and now it's even faster ;)

  • Works kinda good in a VM on Vista, I think I'll give it a try on the macbook when I have a moment :P

  • how come they don't have a virtual PC or vitual Win 7 for running under win 98/ME ?
