Virtual PC 2007 betas for Vista

Posted by David Hunter at 11:08 PM ET.

Nick White at Microsoft’s Windows Vista Team Blog has the Virtual PC 2007 news:

Virtual PC 2007 Beta is now available as a free download from  Virtual PC 2007 is optimized to work well for Windows Vista as both the host and guest OS.  This version works with both 32-bit Vista and 64-bit Vista as the host operating system as well as Windows XP and has improved performance including support for hardware virtualization technologies from AMD and Intel.  So now you have an easy way to try out Windows Vista, even if you are reluctant to replace the OS on one your existing PCs; or if you have already taken the plunge you can spin up a legacy operating system in a virtual machine on your Windows Vista machine.

More by following the link, at the Virtual PC home page, and at the blog of Microsoft’s Virtual PC Guy.

    My note book O/S is Window Vista Home premium. How can I install Virtual PC 2007 ???Please help!!! Because I have a Chinese writing pad which have Voice input function in my mother language (Cantonese) But that device “penpower” do not support Window Vista.

    The Voice infut function in the Window Vista Home Premium only support Mandarin not my language.

    What can I do ? It not fare that Vista business and others can use Virtual PC 2007 but Vita Home Premium can not. I don’t like Vista now, I regret purchased Vista !!!!! It is ver not user friendly.

    You are out of luck on Virtual PC 2007 unless you upgrade to Vista Ultimate. There are a number of “business” features which Microsoft will only provide on a “home” version of Vista when you upgrade to Ultimate. Another is Remote Desktop.
