Under XP I have used VirtualPC which I find very very very easy to use.
What is the best equivalent to do test installs of other Linux desktop
oriented distros or even (shudder) Win operating systems ? The support
for a graphic screen is a must of course and also some "virtual
networking" enabling FTP/HTTP from the virtual machine.
VMWare is not an option for me.
I'd love to know about your real experience.
There are several ways of testing distributions...
1) Qemu or Bochs, however these are quite slow as they emulate a x86
2) VMware, it's quite fast as it's a high-level emulator
