Another virtual hard disk (.vhd) image from Microsoft which contains the following:
- A VPC hard disk image containing a pre-activated Windows XP SP2, IE6 and the IE7 Readiness Toolkit.
Personally I love this new approach and hope Microsoft keeps on going! I had to do some research and testing on ADAM (Active Directory Application Mode) yesterday and the canned Windows Server 2003 R2 image was the perfect pre-made environment in which to do this! Zero prep time was needed since I had already downloaded it. Granted, downloading a couple of gigabytes takes some time, but after that it is cake! Next I would love to see a Vista RTM image!
