Virtual PC 7 for Win 7

Virtual PC 7 is available now for download and inclusion with your copy of Win 7 RC.

It’s working like a champ.  I’ve got it running on my Lenovo T61p laptop, and a virtual Win 7 machine running.  In the virtual Win 7 machine, I can run my “legacy” copies of Microsoft Office so that I can be ready to test new copies whenever and wherever they come from.  ;-) 

Virtual PC 7 now supports USB connections, so peripherals will work within the virtual machine.  The only downside is that Virtual PC 7 still doesn’t support x64 virtual machines, so I can’t install Windows Server 2008 and have support for x64-based versions of SharePoint Server.
