    I use it for some software, but it won't work with my Netgear NAS, & it can't find my Epson printer on USB. To use these, I had to install XP Pro on another HDD & dual-boot. Not very impressed with it!

    Better to just use vmware or virtualbox.

    Maybe, except that doesn't always work. With Virtual box, you set it up to just run the program in a window inside Win 7. With either VMWare or Virtual box you can run more than just XP.

    agree that it is a bit crappy and use up a bit of space as well.... I tried to run some old games but it pop up some directx error and i cant update the video driver as it uses some internal emulated driver....
