A collection of VirtualPC speed tips
Authored by: aboswell on Jan 29, '04 12:39:58PM

I have both VPC running XP Pro and a PC running XP Pro. I can tell you the Remote Desktop is MUCH faster, and with the newer version, you can run it at full screen. The only problem I have encountered with RDC is that it won't share the USB printer attached to my Mac. Something about Terminal Services on the PC not accepting USB or somesuch. Anyway, my 2 cents...

I agree, using Terminal Server through VPC is a lot faster than running programs natively on VPC because all that your mac is doing is displaying graphics instead of emulating an operating system.

The mac native version of remote desktop is great, but I need virtual PC to log into my company's firewall. I'm actually amazed at how well it all works really.
