So, thanks to Nick, I am installing the Virtual Desktop Manager. Supposedly very cool. Actually, I probably should get myself a new laptop with Windows 7. Apparently, doing virtualization plugs directly into hardware, so it’s possible to run Windows 7 in Windows 7 with virtually no performance hit. Good stuff.
Update: sluggish on my Lenovo. Gah. Nick recommended this as an alternative: http://virtuawin.sourceforge.net/
