Technically Speaking All in on IT
I was very glad to read a post today from James O'Neill's blog on Virtual PC 2007. Coincidentally enough, I had just loaded Virtual PC 2004 on Windows Vista build 5536 and was wondering to myself if a new version was ever going to see the light of day. Well fear not! While there is no news on the beta or a release date (other than the "2007" moniker) there is documentation. This gives me hope! Improvements are:

· Optimized for Windows Vista. The virtualization architecture has been optimized for Windows Vista to provide improvements in performance, system resource usage, and stability.

· Improved performance based on Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 R2. Virtual PC 2007 leverages the performance improvements introduced in Virtual Server 2005 R2.

· Provides support for 64-bit host operating systems. You can run Virtual PC 2007 on 64-bit versions of Windows Vista. This means you can run 16-bit operating systems (such as Windows 98 SE) which are not supported natively on 64-bit versions of Windows Vista.

· Provides support for sound devices in Windows Vista guest operating systems. Virtualized sound device drivers are available to Windows Vista guest operating systems. This allows Windows Vista guest operating systems to play sounds through the host operating system sound devices. Other guest operating systems will continue to have sound support as it exists in Virtual PC 2004 today
