I use VPC 2007 on XP. It has an NT4 Workstation, NT4 Server, Server 2003 Standard and Windows 2000 Pro. I use it just for fun or when i'm bored.

I played around with VBox some more and a couple of things were irritating:

1) Somehow it screwed up my HDD registration after doing the some snapshots to the point where I couldn't start the VM I had created. What's with this HDD registration?

2) Networking is overly complicated if you plan to network guest and host... you have to create a network bridge. VPC is so simple, nothing needed at all, it just works.
