Vista and Virtual Machines

I read something a little surprising today. You know all that, "please agree to the…" you get when you install software? Well when you install Vista it says that you cannot install Vista on a Virtual Machine apart from the Business and Ultra (or whatever it’s called) editions. A rather strange thing to do, why should Microsoft care what hardware (or not) it is running on? I could understand if they said they don’t support VM software, after all who’s to say how they fake their hardware, but given the amount of rubbish physical hardware you can buy I don’t understand what they’re worried about. Still if you were not aware of this then now you are…sorry.
