Virtual PC: An overview

Microsoft Virtual PC is a product that enables us to run several operating systems inside our existing one, each one of them acting as a real PC. This is very useful when we have a problem of system incompatibility. A virtual PC can share its network with the host operating system, making it possible to run several virtual machines at one, simulating a complete network, acting as if it were unique servers on the network.

This makes a very fantastic use before deploying something to the real production servers. In the other hand, It also saves reconfiguration time so that we can increase up our convenience and efficiency without wasting much time.
