I am using vista and running sun virtual box to use my microscope which only works on XP.
But the USB handling is horrid.
Has anyone been using XP apps under 7 and is there any problem with which machine has what USB port.
My processor is an Athlon 64 X2 5600+ which according to what I read should have hardware virtualization support.
The standard "home premium" doesn't allow the apps made for xp.
You can always use Sun's XVM virtualization software, it's free, not the fastest but it works quiet well. I'm sticking with Vista until I have an overwhelming reason to upgrade to 7, or until I buy a new computer. I'm fairly certain the new computer will come before I decide to go to windows 7
