This sounds cool

  1. Tunnel vision? It's not a VPC issue, but a VM issue, the same thing
    happens with other VM software.

    I never said CPU and RAM weren't important. But, running more than 1
    OS on the same spindle causes performance hits. Moving VMs off the
    host spindle is the easiest way to increase overall performance of a
    VM (loading the OS, loading programs, swap file, saving data, etc.).

    Defragging a VM on the same HD spindle as the host OS will cause a
    performance hit on the host OS's hard drive performance.

    It you don't want to accept this common fact that's been acknowledged
    for at least 5 years, that's fine.

    If you're so confident, why do you need to repost personal attacks
    under various anonymous remailers?

    No, it's an overall PC performance issue. VPC is just an app.
    Depending on what they're doing.
    Depending on what the host is doing.
    Depending on what the host is doing.
    If you don't want to accept the fact that what the host and VMs are doing is
    what will impact performance, that's ok by me.
    Because I chose to remain anonymous, which has nothing to do with my experience
    with VMs from day 1, including IBM mainframes 30 years ago.

  3. That is the whole point! What the VMs and Host do DO impact
    performance, and since both are using the same hard disk, this will
    affect performance.

    Stop being so pedantic.

  4. I am glad you finally outed yourself as a moron. You just showed how stupid
    you are because you just proved you know absolutely nothing.

  10. What part of only when they're both running disk intensive apps do you not understand?

    However, undo files and session state files will go to the location
    where Virtual PC store .VMC (default somewhere in My Documents) so if
    you are going to use these features you need to make sure you have
    enough disk space on that drive.

    Learned this the hard way. Couldn't understand why using undo disks was
    so slow until I realized the files were stored under My Documents which
    on my machine is redirected to a network drive :).

    You can change the location where VPC store .VMC files. I think you set
    the location using an environment variable MYVIRTUALMACHINES if I
    remember correctly.
