Legacy News: Windows 7 and virtual software

May 14th, 2009

This May 5, 2009 article at Millenia’s Legacy News has a great tip for those that cannot wait for the next version of Windows to officially released:

I personally would not suggest installing pre-release software, especially an entire operating system, for use with your one copy of every-day critical data. After all, you would also have to backup all your files and reinstall all your software (unless you are currently using Windows Vista). But if you are one of those techie nerds like myself who wants a jump on all the latest software, I suggest that you install Windows 7 in a "virtual PC" environment or on a spare computer. Using Microsoft’s free Virtual PC 2007 or Sun Microsystem’s free VirtualBox, you can run multiple operating systems at once, on your one computer.
