Default Virtual Machines on XP

What virual machine (VM) should I install on a windows XP pro machine, microsoft's VirtualPC or VMware? I am only concerned about which software package is more stable.

I have used both Microsoft's VIrtual PC and VMware. Both seem to work fine. I guess it would all depend on what your looking to do with your Virtual Machine.

Since Microsoft's VitualPC is FREE....I would start with that and see how it works for you.

The best thing is you can download Microsoft's Virual PC and try it out and if it does not seem to work for you then delete it and buy VMware!

I use VMware to run Windows on my MAC and absolutely love it. Again, it would have to depends on what your hoping to run with a VM.

Hope this helps.

Not that anyone needs me to, or maybe even wants me to, but for what it's worth I absolutely agree with the previous poster and endorse his ! experiences.

Hi mate...If you're interested in running applications, Virtual PC 2004 (Microsoft; US$129) and VMware Workstation 4.5 (VMware; US$189 to download, US$199 with packaging) are both competitive tools for the job. In fact, they're both so refined that your ultimate purchase decision will be affected more by your own needs than by any inherent problems with the programs. While general performance is an important consideration,your eventual uses for the software are more important.
Here are comparison between Microsoft Virtual PC 2004 and VMware Workstation 4.5:

Microsoft Virtual PC 2004

Pros

1.Simple to use
2.More features from VM Additions
3.Smoother Windows support

Cons

1.Limited OS support beyond Windows
2.Interface and help feel deceptively sparse
3.No USB pass-through support

VMware Workstation 4.5

Pros

1.Speed, speed, speed
2.Strong Linux support
3.Robust networking options
4.USB pass through support
5.Support for SCSI devices

Cons

1.Price vs. Virtual PC
2.No dynamic display resizing
3.Less-refined Windows support

I hope this could provide a clear cut solution for your problem....

Perhaps he would be savvy enough to download Virtual PC 2007 which is far better than the old 2004 version, on which your opinions are based.
2007 has much more hardware support, for instance USB support even in Win 98\95 and virtually instant and very robust networking configuration.
