Blast from the past: Connectix Virtual PC

Another interesting find in my effort to cover at least one customer and partner challenge or issue per day…

Over the weekend I did a little spring cleaning and came across a number of old application floppies (yes, applications used to come distributed on floppy discs). One of the discs I came across was the Virtual PC: Microsoft acquired the virtual machine systems via Connectix back in 2003 (details here) for Macintosh and Windows computers. Although the product is no longer generally supported, there are still several references and support documents available here on the Microsoft support site, as well as information here on TechNet.

Today, you can find our more about how the technology has evolved into support available on Windows 7 (in the Professional and Ultimate SKUs) with Windows XP Mode and Windows Virtual PC here on
