A lot of people use Virtual PC for different things. Our primary target markets are:
- Legacy application migration in the enterprise
- Development / test / training / demonstration environments.
Me – I like to use it for gaming (and many other things). Virtual PC only emulates a 2D video card – so it is somewhat limited for gaming – but what it does do – it does well.
The game that I have played most inside of Virtual PC would have to be Warlords III – but I am also well known on the development team as ‘the guy who setup a head-to-head DOOM deathmatch on one computer’. It’s kind of fun to see – but when you win you lose too 🙂
Interestingly enough I just got Unreal Tournament 2004 to run under Virtual PC – as it actually includes a software render. Quality is pretty bad – but it is quite playable.
