While I have Connectix Virtual PC v4.1 installed on my computer, I have some following benefits that not available in Microsoft Virtual PC 2004 or 2007:

- Creating the new virtual hard disk in Virtual PC 4.1, and the VHD is formatted already. In VPC 2007, it will not formatted when creating the new VHD unless you need to fdisk and format yourself.

- VPC 2007 has some problems running Windows NT 3.x, the Virtual PC v4.1 works fine at all (tested NT 3.51 with SP5 and rarely, NT 3.5 (patches the installation files)).

Too bad you can't have them side by side or even install 4.1 on Vista (even XP?) or higher.

I rather prefer VirtualBox to Virtual PC, but is it better (Connectix) than VirtualBox? I've read it numerous times, that VirtualBox is the best free piece of virtualization software.
