"Powerful application virtualization solution."
Windows Virtual PC is a way to run more than one operating system concurrently from a single PC. This can be useful when needing to test different web browser compatibility for web sites across multiple operating systems without needing to reboot the PC each time you wish to test. The package uses virtualization to achieve this feat by allowing several virtual machines to be run over the top of the current Windows then closing the virtual machine down when it is no longer needed. A stable way to test more than one operating system instead the main installed operating system of the computer.
