New Virtual Machines for VSTS 2008 and VS 2010!

This time we get both Virtual PC 2007/Virtual Server 2005 and Hyper-V compatible images, which is really useful since I use both Hyper-V and Virtual PC for demos and presentations.

The beta 2 image will be really useful for testing out the coming version (which I really recommend you checkout if you haven’t done so already). Here are the links to the full VPC images:

Here are the file sets if you use the Free Download Manager for downloads:
