Windows 7 Mode on Windows 7 (i.e. not XP Mode!)

 

Finally sorted a Windows 7 VM under Windows Virtual PC, works a treat, the “integration features” is very very useful.

I was pleased that Aero Glass works as it doesn’t under VMWare Workstation 6.5 (but does on the beta of Workstation7). The UI is much more performant on WVPC than it is on Workstation 7 – but then there is debugging enabled on the Workstation 7 beta that I can’t turn off.

 

Not done any server comparisons (running Win2k8 under Windows VPC vs Workstation 7) and am unlikely to as Windows VPC isn’t capable of virtualising x64, shame really, MSFT don’t really seem to have a story for the IT Pro who needs to run x64 VM’s on a laptop…
