Speed-up and usage tips for IE6 in VirtualPC
Authored by: rotaiv on Jan 31, '05 10:54:40AM

As one who has installed every version of Microsoft's operating systems from Windows 1.01 to Windows Server 2003 in "virtual" environments, I can tell you that in my opinion, the leanest and most efficient OS to run is NT 4.0. The worst, without a doubt, is Windows Me ;) I also concur that Win XP runs way better than Win 98 virtually.

NT 4 within VPC
Authored by: demmons65 on Jan 31, '05 03:07:51PM

I concur with rotaiv that NT 4 seems the fastest of all Windows under VPC. The company I work for tested 98, NT4, W2K, and XP Pro for speed. We're accessing an ADP Windows-only payroll solution and NT4 seemed to be the most repsonsive of the 4. The fact that licensed NT 4 was about $25 per seat didn't hurt either.
