Hey,

I just read some stuff in PC World about VM's and how they can be pretty cool. Does anyone know of any good freeware VM's you can download and play around with? Also any good tutorials or guides to use them?

Thanks!

Microsoft has Virtual PC, and it's free to download. Check out Overview of Microsoft Virtual PC 2007. If this is what you are looking for, you can download it HERE.

EDIT: Tutorial on Installing Virtual PC 2007
Tutorial on setting up Virtual PC 2007

Hope this is helpful to you. :thumbsup:

There's also VMware's free VMware Player. VMware is just better than VirtualPC, in my opinion. Only drawback: VMware Player can't create virtual machines. Solution: tons of free online VM makers that allow you to generate the necessary files for a VMware virtual machine and download them.
