MSFT has recently made their software for virtualization available for free.
To download it click on the following link Microsoft Virtual PCÂ (VPC)
For deployment and a better understanding about virtualization You can check out the following page:Â Â Microsoft Virtual PC Deployment
VPC works with several Linux distributions as well. The following page is to an unofficial list of os it works with: The List
At the bottom of theÂ page there are links to several sites that have additional information about VPC.
- A large disc enabling you to have several os and configurations (I use a 250 GB disc).
- Licenses of the os and other softwares to be used.

At that time we used Netscape, which was the #1 browser,Â and paid a license fee in order to use it. Within some months Netscape was out of business and IE ruled. I hope we will not face the same situation with vmWare…
