    FYI guys...
    Microsoft has made Virtual PC 2004 (SP1) freely available to download from its website.
    Not sure about its Linux etc support though! :biggrin

    Linky


    NB Thanks to The Inquirer for the link.

    Nice one mate. :thumbleft

    If this is now free as well as the server version, it makes me wonder what they're going to put into the action packs to make up for this.:rolleyes:

    No VMS either but wouldn't work anyway (except FreeVMS but it's not been officially released). Anyway, the one that caught my eye was "Windows Longhorn Server Beta 2 Build 5384". Didn't know there'd been a beta for Longhorn Server released. Was it any good?
