I was a bit surprised to find someone still blogging about VPC Express – especially as they linked to a post of mine which said it was dead. If you go back to Vista documents of last summer we talked about this product, which essentially was going to a cut down version of Virtual PC which could only run a single VM. The idea being that if something wouldn’t run under vista you’d be able to run it under the old OS in a VM. I never saw a screen shot, much less a demo of “express” and I think it was always intended to be Virtual PC 2007 coded for a 1 VM limit.
When we made all Virtualization free of charge last year the need for VPC Express went away, and all talk of it ceased. Did we update documents accordingly ? If we had no one would still blog about it.
