Recently we asked you if you run virtual machines on your PC. Here’s what you said:
It would seem, from these results that most people use virtual machines. However, I’m sure that people who currently run virtual machines have a greater interest in answering a poll like this. The next question, however, is a little more revealing:
Not surprisingly, many of you run Windows XP as a virtual machine (more about running XP as a VM.) As you may or may not have noticed, we don’t really talk about XP much on Windows Guides any more. In fact, most of our recent guides are Windows 7 only or are written with Windows 7 in mind. It’s also interesting to see how few of us run Chrome OS as a VM. I wonder if we ran this poll again, in a year, what the results would look like for Chrome OS and Windows XP usage.
Question for Windows Guides Readers
Are you still interested in Windows XP guides? Is this something on which I should focus more or are you happy with the Windows 7 content currently being made available? Please let us know in the comments.
