Virtual PC seems to work nicely, Virtual Server seems to have a problem, I cannot pinpoint the origin yet, but with time, and a little help from my friends I have good hopes of it starting to work at some time.
Office had to regroup, but this turned out OK, and every setting I had (even WiFi) is working.
I must say: I am Pretty impressed with this build.
most apps just started right away, from the first boot.
One thing is still strange: the installation did not keep the root certificate from our company in store. So I had to reinstall it before Office communicator could connect to the server. the problem of the not loading ActiveX component at the CertSrv website remains. I hope they solve this very soon, I want to try a clean install of my LapTop, and I need a cert for my WiFi.
