Windows Vista, Virtual PC and Flip-3D

Windows Vista, Virtual PC and Flip-3D

  • Comments 5

Now that the beta of Virtual PC 2007 is available for general use, and is able to run on Windows Vista, without disabling Aero glass, there are a number of cool things you can do.  One of my personal favorites is to use the new application changer, Flip-3D, with multiple virtual machines running:

What you don't see in the screenshot is that each of the virtual machines are updated live while in Flip-3D mode. This makes it very easy to keep an eye on the progress of multiple virtual machines at the same time.

Cheers,
Ben

  • I'll be even more impressed when they get Flip-3D and Aero glass working INSIDE a virtual PC.  ;)

  • For a quick overview of what your virtual machines are doing, take a look at My Exposé :

    It will show you all open windows on a grid, similar to Exposé on MacOS.

  • Why do you need Flip-3D for that? My plain Vista (RC1) does exactly the same when you hit Windows-Tab.

  • Jonathan: Flip 3D is the name of the Win+Tab Vista feature.
