Anyone tried Vista on VMware?

    Or Virtual PC 2007 beta?  Or maybe Virtual PC 2004, though I seem to recall Vista not being supported on that.

    I ran Vista (RC1, I think) on Virtual PC 2004 almost fine.  The only catch was that Virtual PC would freeze on network access if shared networking was enabled.  You had to use the Microsoft Loopback Adapter + ICS to get an internet connection.

    I assume they fixed this in VPC 2007, since it's supposed to support Vista as a guest.

    There were a few buggy issues installing Vista on VMware, but after the initial install it ran pretty decently (albeit without Aero Glass).
