Default Re: Virtual Machine

Well there is VMware player, virtualbox, QEMU, Microsofts virtual machine and probably a load more.

Don't get too hung up on RAM requirements, most good virtual machine hyper visors will be able to manage ram effectively, (so a 1GB allocation of ram to your VM doesn't necessarily mean a 1GB chuck of ram unavailable to your OS running the virtual machine.

You will have the problem of where to get windows XP and windows 2000 from, (try ebay?) I believe that you have downgrade rights with licenses, but that doesn't extend to running multiple OS distributions.
