Virtual PC 2004

This probably goes along with my previous post, but I though a new post would be better fitted for this.

So, I downloaded Microsoft Virtual PC 2004 (which is now free) and installed the IE6 image from Microsoft. It’s actually pretty cool. It works almost the same as a normal copy of XP, just that it’s in a window inside of your copy of Windows (unless you switch to Full Screen mode). It has automatic updates and everything. You can even restart it, shut it down, etc. You can even install programs on it. I think it could be pretty useful if you’re making applications and want to test them on different versions of Windows. There is a main drawback to Virtual PC, if you want to use it with Virtual copies of Windows, you need a Product Key for them. Which sucks…
