The final version of Virtual PC 2007 is now available for download. In this regard, Virtual PC 2007 is another product that Microsoft has added to the support list for Windows Vista, approximately
three weeks after the operating system has hit the shelves. Virtual PC 2007 supports Windows Vista as both the host and the guest operating system but is also leveraging new hardware virtualization technology from Intel and AMD.
Windows Vista Business, Windows Vista Enterprise, Windows Vista Ultimate, Windows Server 2003, Standard Edition, Windows Server 2003, Standard x64 Edition, Windows XP Professional, Windows XP Professional x64 Edition and Windows XP Tablet PC Edition are the operating systems supported as hosts.
Windows Vista Ultimate, Windows Vista Enterprise, Windows Vista Business, Windows XP Professional, Windows XP Tablet PC Edition, Windows 2000 Professional, Windows 98 Second Edition and IBM OS/2 Warp 4 Fixpack 15, OS/2 Warp Convenience Pack 1, and OS/2 Warp Convenience Pack 2 are the supported guest operating systems.
Microsoft additionally revealed that Virtual PC 2007 is compatible with operating systems closely integrated with Virtual PC 2004 SP1 but that are no longer supported in this release including: MS-DOS 6.22, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Millennium Edition and Windows NT 4.0 Workstation.
"Save time and money as Virtual PC allows you to maintain the compatibility of legacy and custom applications during migration to new operating systems and increases the efficiency of support, development, and training staffs. With Microsoft Virtual PC 2007, you can create and run one or more virtual machines, each with its own operating system, on a single computer. This provides you with the flexibility to use different operating systems on one physical computer," reads a fragment of the Virtual PC 2007's description.
