    What I would like to see is a slimed down bare minimum install of Windows for
    running Applications on a virtual PC. Do not need all of the other stuff that
    comes with windows. Already have the extras in the Host OS. The OS could be
    based on an older Windows OS and either be free or resonably priced with no
    limit on the number of installs. This would help us folks with limited
    funding more easily adopt & use Virtual PC (VPC).

    Where's the incentive to Microsoft here? VPC is free, so they
    don't really gain anything financially here from folks "adopting
    and using it"?

    Micro$oft has an incentive for everything! Why not go to Add / Remove
    programs in 98 or 95 and select the OS programs on the left of the listing
    and get rid of what you don;t want. I have done this for years with every
    win version. I have dumped the games, fax, MSN, etc. It has worked
    everytime.

    You've completely missed the point.

    He means:
    What will Microsoft get out of that moneywise?
    Your reply seems like you have not understood that.
