Any color you want, as long as its black

According to eWeek, Microsoft has defined a new vision of "heterogeneous networking" with the upcoming release of Virtual PC. The application, when purchased from Connectix Corp. last February, allowed users to run multiple operating systems (Windows, NetWare, Linux, FreeBSD, OS/2, etc.) on a single Intel-based PC. While the new version will, supposedly, handle non-Microsoft OSes, you'll need to get out your tools and climb under the hood because the easy-to-use wizards will only support installation of XP, W2K, NT Workstation, 98, 95, ME, Windows 3.1, and OS/2 VMs on XP, W2K, NT 4 SP6 or Server 2003.

To paraphrase Henry Ford, you can run any OS you want, as long as its Microsoft!
