    Today I decided to play little with virtualization. Result: a surprisingly fast and smooth working Windows XP Mode, with integration features, running on Microsoft Virtual PC on Windows 7 Ultimate virtual machine running on VMWare Player on Windows 8!

    Nice...

    Hi there
    running a VM on a VM -- OK good idea but perhaps not the best way.

    A better method is to use say VMWARE player and use one of your previous posts -- can't remember the link currently -- to create an XP VM from the XP mode system.

    Cheers

    This was and is just for fun, testing different virtualization scenarios, what is possible. Have to admit I enjoyed playing XP Space Cadet on Win 8 desktop (using VMWare Unity mode).

    Computing can be fun sometimes!

    We had House Swimming today. Our house broke our record; we came 6th.

    I came 4th in Breaststroke, 2nd in Backstroke and we came 6th in the Medley Relay. So all in all, not as bad a day as I thought it would be.
