What's running on Ben Armstrong's
machine? Linux? Yes! BeOS? Yes! OS/2? Yes! Windows 95? Yes! Microsoft Bob? Yes! Free BSD? Yes! And about 600 other operating systems.
Come and meet the Virtual Machine folks (today you'll meet Ben, who's a program manager on the
team, tomorrow you'll meet Tony Donno of the Virtual Server team).
Here Ben talks about and demos Virtual PC. After all, he's the "Virtual PC Guy
" on Microsoft's employee blogs (visit his blogroll for links to the community sites he shows off).
Our favorite quote from the interview? "You can never have enough RAM."
Yes, he demos both Linux and Microsoft Bob for us.
Why is Virtual PC cool for developers? You'll see in the video, but Virtual PC lets you test your code on a large number of operating systems quickly and with little fuss (make a mistake, go back to a previous version and test again).
