Take Windows vista enterprise for a test drive
Microsoft have made Windows Vista Enterprise available as a Virtual PC image for a 30 day evaluation. This is great for those of us that would like to try it out but don’t want to upgrade our systems yet. Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 is available as a free download so you have everything you need to get going.
I downloaded it onto my Windows XP Pro machine and I had it up and running with no issues. One thing to watch is the virtual network card is not connected and you will need to modify this in Virtual PC before starting the image.
