Virtual PC and Longhorn

August 30, 2003 Written by Charles Cook

Another Virtual PC snippet. Chris Anderson is running Longhorn in a Virtual PC session:

I have an XP virtual session that i run on my XP laptop. The other day I upgrade the XP virtual machine to run the latest Longhorn build. Very cool. In preparation for the PDC I was trying out some libraries that we were creating. So, I turned on the "Undo Disk" feature - basically you can run the session and then at completion choose to throw away all the changes to the machine, completely. Very cool.

So all you people going to the PDC need to make sure Virtual PC is installed on your laptop. You don't want to have to wait until you get back to the office to run the Longhorn handout. Note you'll need to take a DVD drive too.
