M$ Virtual PC free...

Post by boat » Thu Jul 13, 2006 9:08 am

courtesy slashdot...:

""After making Virtual Server available for free some time ago, Microsoft announced today it is offering Virtual PC as a free (as in beer) download. They also announced a change to the Vista license related to virtualization: Customers who deploy Windows Vista Enterprise have the ability to install up to four (4) copies of the operating system in a virtual machine for a single user on a single device. Even better, nothing in the license requires that Microsoft Virtualization technologies be used - if you want to use a competing product as your Virtualization solution, you still get the four extra licenses for use with VMs.""

last time i tried virtual pc, it couldn't virtualize any audio. if you can live without sound, it should be fine.

when i was looking at what hte differences between server and pc were, as they have a free download of server too, i thought i had read that the pc version is able to virtualize audio...as the pc version is geared towards desktop usage and hte server version is geared toward more customize/secure/etc setups :pbt:
