So I've just finished installing Ubuntu on my Virtual PC through Windows 7. It went mostly smoothly. The only issue I had was that the mouse did not work. I've looked online a bit and found some old forum posts and they were non-conclusive.
I'm updating Ubuntu right now...maybe something will get fixed.
Maybe I should try Ubuntu in VPC. Here's a screenshot of XP Mode:
Besides, why are you using small Taskbar icons in the host Windows 7 RC that you have?
I like the smaller icons...not sure why.
The virtual XP works fine for me....but I have no use for that...all of my stuff works on W7.
The only time I use small Taskbar icons is when my Taskbar is too cluttered. That is, too many pinned applications to fit with large icons. I use the small icons in that case to free up Taskbar space.
I really have no use for XPM either. It is a VirtualPC add-on from Microsoft that really has no use other than corporate use. It really should go off my system. I was just demonstrating the feature so more people would know about it. It really is a free downloadable add-on from Microsoft for Windows 7 RC that is designed so corporations can install their XP-only applications without having to port them. In Windows 7 Professional, Ultimate, and Enterprise final builds, XP Mode and Virtual PC will be built in. It's XP Mode
you see in that screenshot, not the original XP. It's designed to work in a virtual machine, and yes, it is a free add-on to Windows 7 RC as I mentioned. http://www.microsoft...c/download.aspx
