There are also people who say bad things about Linux. Which of the two lots
are likely to be most correct, those who tried Linux and didn't like it or
those that tried Vista and didn't like it.
I'm a Linux advocate, so my view would have little meaning to you either, I
would say that Linux is the best thing to ever sit on a computer. How can

You can get a free trial of XPVista, I am only reccommending this because it
sounds like you have a spare drive now with your old version of MS Win on
it, so no great loss if the virtual install destroys it. Please unplug your
Ubuntu drive before you start, we don't want any *** accidents, best put
the *** gloves on too, well you never know.
The google search "vista free trial" brings up various links to it.
The reason I say this is because I don't want you sitting in front of your

something. Instead I would rather you sat there knowing you had made the
Actually I noticed in that search a link to 'Microsoft Virtual PC' free
download, it says it is for every version of DOS and Windows and OS/2 (can
you still get OS/2 install discs?).
I couldn't help wondering the obvious, will Linux run in that particular VM?
Yes it does, the list of tested OS's is impressive,
I suspect that we will see that rolling out to the MS Hosts and why not, do
we really care where the VM machine comes from, so long as the OS we rent
is of the type that we want.
