    Interesting, I personally don't care about Virtualization, my Fujitsu Amilo Pi3560 doesn't support Hardware Virtualization and I never felt that I missed anything but some people need it

    I never liked Sony computers, especially one of my associates @ work Sony monitor went PINK on her.

    For those that need VT but don't have the hardware VMware (Workstation) works on non-VT hardware unlike VPC from MS.

    VPC from MS also does NOT need VT (just use the latest official patch for it)

    True, but (sadly):

    Nothing sad about it, just use Workstation (or even better, Parallels on Mac)

    Problem without VT is no 64 bit VM. I have Intel CPU without VT and cannot run a 64 bit OS in any type of VM software.

    On my old laptop (AMD CPU) I could run 64 bit in VM even with 32 bit OS. Pretty much all modern AMD CPUs have VT support but Intel screws alot of people especially laptops.
