Getting a new laptop Wed with Win 7 Pro (6 gb mem) moving from a WinXP pro and want to use basic virtualization (new laptop is hardware compatible). I have read lots of threads and looked, as much as I could, at VirtualBox, VMPlayer and VirtualPC xpmode. Which should I use?
1. I will only be running either Windows 7 or XP as the guest OSs and not doing anything but basic things. XP just to have my old system and Win 7 if I want to try something before loading to my real system.
2. I would like to get my old XP system over to be able to run programs from it by using a VHD save (I have acronis for doing the image backup as VHD).
3. Very imporant is I want something that will be easy and as trouble free as possible as I am new to virtualization.
What is the best choice for me of the three programs?
