Microsoft Virtual pc 2004

Recommended Posts

i have been readong about this product originally made by connectix that lets you run any OS inside your own, so, for example you can run linux from xp, has anyone tried it or know about how good/bad is it?

I've used version 3 on a macintosh (quite a long time ago) when it was still maintained by Connectix, and I think it's quite a good software (never had any compatibility problems) <_<
I don't know what it's worth on windows though...

This is one reason why I wish we had a PC Emulation section.
I've personally tried it and it's a great soft. However your going to need a lot of ram and there's another software just like it and much better called VMWARE. It runs pretty much full speed! You can even ask Solidius, one of our mods who runs Linux on it as well. :P

dual boot shouldn't really be a problem anymore.

i dunno why you'd want to use an os inside an os.
