My intent over the next couple of months is to build a new computer. It will be relatively fast, have plenty of memory and storage space. My original plan was to migrate my existing XP Pro 32 Bit installation (what I intend to continue using in general) to the new hardware and then eventually dual boot with Win 7 64 Bit. As I read a little more about virtualizing, I am wondering whether I should set the new machine up initially as Win 7, and virtualize my existing XP install. I then could run both systems at the same time. My questions to all you experts are; What would you do in this situation and what would be the pros and cons of each setup? Thanks in advance!
