Windows 7: XPmode or Virtualbox

No offense, LePoilu, but are you using Word / WordPerfect to generate your replies, or a translator to translate? The reason I ask is that your post above has font information for every line, including the font name as well as color - and the problem is that I am using the W7 dark theme and your color forcing makes it look horribly unreadable on this particular theme:

Before anyone asks why I am using the dark 0 b/c I want to - it is easier on my eyes.

To all users - please don't include font and color restrictions for the entire post you're making - highlighting words or phrase for emphasis is one thing - but posts like this (and this is not the only one - this is in fact the 5th time in 2 days I have run into a post like this that was completely and partially illegible due to the font color) b/c there are other themes on here that your colors will look horrid on....

Getting back on topic: VPC does support virtualization, but not as much as Vbox. VMWare 6.5 I helped test - it works well enough, but I had major issues (to no fault of VMWare - W7 and nVidia hardware drivers were making the virtualization of x64 hardware fail even though it was enabled in the BIOS - which I figured out just before VMWare 6.5 was released, and by which time I had fallen in love with VBox b/c of the price).s

Yep sorry, Sometimes I use Outlook for writing messages. Because when I'm at work the "new mail" windows is more discrete than a browser windows (and it has spelling corrector ).
And the font informations are not visible unless you switch to advanced mode on the forum text editor. Then I did know that ..

I'll try to be carefull next time. Sorry.
