    WHY did MS. make virtual 2007, and not make it compatible with their most
    widely distributed version fo VISTA?????????????????


    I dont understand why they would do that?? I am trying to run Virtual PC
    2007 on my HP laptop that came with Vista HOME PREMIUM. I am an IT student
    and I need to write scripts in UNIX and LINUX, and I am sick of booting back
    and forth between windows and Ubuntu, and Knoppix linux. SO A friend told me
    about Virtual PC 2007, well good luck, I cant use the god damn thing????? MS,
    why do you people do retarded stuff like this??????

    It should work. It has for other people. Have you tried Virtual Box?

  3. Calm down. It works fine.

    Just ignore the "...not supported..." message and click through it. Then
    VPC2007 will install in Vista and let you run other OSs as virtual machines.

    Note that VPC2007 only "officially" supports other Microsoft OSs. However,
    I've had various Linux distros running on it, along with DOS and FreeDOS.

    If you want one that officially supports Linux virtual machines, try
    www.virtualbox.org. It's great.
