So I know a number of you are running Vista on your PC and you may be curious about how to install Virtual Server 2005 R2.  A while back The Virtual PC Guy, Ben Armstrong, wrote a bit on how to install Virtual Server 2005 R2 on Vista.

For a lot of you, Virtual Server is a little to much for your notebook/desktop so I thought I'd let you know that Virtual PC 2007 has been released into the beta-sphere.  VPC 2007 brings:

  • Support for hardware virtualization (Intel and AMD)
  • Support for Windows Vista as a host operating system
  • Support for Windows Vista as a guest operating system Note: No support for Aero Glass though - just Aero Basic
  • Support for 64-bit host operating systems Note: Virtual machines are 32-bit only
  • Improved performance 
  • I've been running the internal builds for a few weeks now and I have to say it works quite well.  Head over to http://connect.microsoft.com and grab a copy and get virtual on your Vista PC!
