MS claims Shocked its new Virtual PC 2007 can support multiple OS'es at once.

I guess I'll just have to try running a bunch of *nux'es on it. Tongue

GADS, doesn't this sound obnoxious, or what?  Couldn't even think of a "good" analogy...

Wow - the MS thingy-ma-kludge actually works - and it's only 30 megs with no more downloads.

 Embarrassed Scarry business!

Sorry to be talking to myself, but I actually do have to try this out with VL and a few, er ah, others  Lips sealed

Besides, it is the American 4th of July ... so I was hope for some Xplosions 

Here's my proposed firecraker stack, VL getting the honor of lighting the fuse, er well,  Undecided no pun intended:

VL
VIRTUAL PC '07
WINXP
WINE

Do you smell smoke?

My current favorite virtualization system is Virtualbox.  Open-source, and runs Linux under a Windows host, or Windows under a Linux host.

Is it ok if it's lightly charred? Tongue

<< -- F I Z Z L E  !
I grabbed the nearest Penguine and tossed him through this new Wonder Windoz...

LILO said LOL - and the loader proclaimed: "I can't find the Kernel and I want to scream!"

aaaaarrrgggghhhhhh !

Although the MS Wizard noted an unmounted partition (on which my Penguine subsisted on EXT2 treats), it doesn't seem to really allow the drive to be available to one of those "other Operating Systems"  Embarrassed

Donate PC - charred or otherwise??

As a coder, I must save them to sacrifice to the Lesser Gate's Gods, such as DOS and Win 3.1...
Yes, I am a line-edit Luddite  Shocked

*serious aside to Toe: thanks for the tip and link to innotek's virtual box - looks good! *

cheers
