Learn with a Virtual PC

The best way to learn about computers is by experimenting with live systems but unless you have a spare computer it is not always possible to take your main computer off line and install another operating system like Windows 2003 Server and play around with Active Directory. With Microsoft Virtual PC you do not need an extra computer as with the software you can install another operating system and run it within your current OS. I am not sure what the cost of the software is but
Microsoft offers a full 45-Day Trail Edition
that you can download.

I am lucky enough to have a number of computers to experiement with but if you are restricted to one computer I recommend downloading the trial and learning. I will install the trial myself and will attempt to make a ‘How to’ about using Microsoft Virtual PC to help new users.
