Microsoft Provides developers with free XP Professional Virtual Image

Microsoft knows the pain of web developers who have been trying to test their websites in both IE6 and IE7. For this reason Microsoft has released a Virtual Imaged pre-activated copy of Windows XP Professional that will stop working as of April 1st, 2007. This copy must be loaded in Virtual PC 2004 or 2007 which is a free download also. This will allow developers to install IE7 on there main machine and test there website in IE6 on a virtual Machine.

This also allows developers who run Vista as a main Operating System to test out their applications in XP.
I think this is great news!

Download ( Virtual PC 2004 --- XP Professional VHD )

Source ( IE6 and IE7 Running on a Single Machine )
