I've been reading some informative threads on Virtual PC etc, but still have not come to the conclusion as to which VM is best for my purposes. I have zero experience running a VM. My AMD64 bit APU is qualified. I installed Virtual PC and it appears that I must re-install from system DVD. Can you flush the V-PC image and restart clean without the time consuming re-install procedure? Can I somehow make an image file that will quickly reload? What I want is something akin to the old Win2K/XP Public Library Steady State which flushed accumulated file detritus on exit and refreshed for each login, like a system restore point. No network interaction is required. Yes I realize Steady State ran on a server as a client "cloud" image, and the licenses probably cost a small fortune. My Roku croaked and until I get it replaced I want to experiment with Netflix HDMI out to TV. This works successfully with everything but Sliverlight. I used to run this way on XP years ago before I became security conscious. I no longer run a bare naked browser. DRM will not authenticate inside my SandboxIE "shadow" machine. I reject allowing Nflx tracking filth all over my system for the interim but I want to experiment with VMs in the meanwhile as well. If the VM is almost as permanent as the primary OS, its pretty useless to me. Any suggestions? Thanks. BTW, be nice if Nflx simply ran on HTML5. Weren't they talking about that at some point so it would run cross platform? More RIAA/ MPAA paralysis?
