Virtual PC 2004 vs 2007

Finally downloaded the VPC of Orcas (Visual Studio 9 Beta) so I can have a play with Silverlight. After what seemed like a life time to download the files I finally managed to get it running on VPC 2004. However, it was a bit slow, typical Virtual PC speed…poor. Now I know that VPC 2007 runs Vista better so I thought I’d give it a go and I’m not disapointed. VPC2007 seems much faster than VPC. If feels like your running on old machine, capable but you have to be a bit patient at times. Whereas VPC2004 was like you were running on a PIII that was also doubling as a server for hotmail. So my advice to all you VPC 2004 users, get 2007 now!
