Windows 7 Ultimate x64 & Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat Beta
Which is better: VMWare Wkst. or Windows VPC

I personally use VMWare since my processor doesn't support HAV.

What do you use?

BTW: Windows Virtual PC is Win7 Pro, Ult, Ent only.
Microsoft Virtual PC is Vista+XP

Vista Ult 64 bit Seven Ult RTM x64

Hi palz,

Welcome to 7 Forums.

I've been playing with Vbox. Just downloaded VM player the other day to give it a play. Vista runs much snappier in Player, but I don't see any way to mount a VHD (I just may not have found it yet). The nice thing about Vbox is that I can create a VHD of my system partition(s) and then boot it in Vbox. Haven't checked yet to see if workstation is capable of that.

My personal choice is VMware and I find the VMware converter (it's a standalone installer) very useful.

I have both installed because Virtual PC is preferred for my Microsoft Studies; but I rarely use it.

Windows 7 Professional (x64)

Never actually used Workstation, but my vote goes to VMware.
