If you're like me, you'll love to download and test the latest software. However, whilst 99.9% of commercial software is problem free, security developers would have us think that any potential software - even from commercial brands - has a potential trojan, virus or other issue that could affect your PC. Of course they're going to make you worried. They want to sell you security software.
Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 SP1 has free (yes, free) commercial virtual operating system software that will enable you to host another copy of Windows (XP, Vista) on top of your existing installation. This would enable you to test software, upgrades, new drivers and do a lot more with the OS, without worrying about breaking or causing problems. The new SP1 adds more functionality, such as the ability to host a Vista SP1 or XP SP3-based OS.
