Woot! as Jim stated on his blog entry, now we can make Virtual PC hands on labs that can connect directly to a device using USB. Previously we had to use emulators exclusively.

so for the lucky few who are in the beta program, Congrats! I just can't wait to get my hands on it. Install is on Vista as a host and start building new labs.

Update: Looks like we all were wrong. USB isn't in Virtual PC 2007. Which is a SHAME! How can that be? VMWare has it for years and we're still not supporting it? If anyone from the VPC team is reading this, perhaps you can shed some light on this.
