    You can install and run most x86 operating systems in a virtual machine environment including Windows, DOS, OS/2, Linux, and Novell NetWare.
  • Virtual Machine Additions
    Virtual Machine Additions provides a high level of integration between host and guest OSes, allowing you to cut and paste, share folders, and much more.
  • Portable virtual hard disks (VHDs)
    Portable VHDs and configuration settings stored in .XML files simplify virtual machine deployments and enable fast, economical disaster recovery.
