Virtual PC

Probably the simplest virtual machine software to use, Microsoft’s Virtual PC makes installing, saving, and organizing your various virtual machines easy. Virtual PC doesn’t give you the level of control that VMware Player so it’s best left for Windows users who are new to virtual computing.

Virtual PC is slow to boot and save virtual images so we don’t recommend it if you’ll be loading a bunch of different virtual operating systems often. Virtual PC is a good starter virtual machine program that works well for people who want to run other Windows systems on their own Windows machine. If you’re running a Mac check out Parallels and for more control over each virtual machine download the free VMware Player.
