I don't foresee ever running Vista in a virtual machine. I'd have to buy a copy for one thing. I know that Microsoft had done a couple of turnarounds on running Vista in a virtual machine. I still don't think they are allowing you to run the same copy in a real computer and a virtual machine. That would count as running one copy on two machines and is a no-no.

My concern was with the licensing of Virtual PC 2007, and there's nothing in the EULA that says you can't run VPC on the Home versions of XP and Vista without violating the license.

What I'm interested in is running a Win 9x version so that a couple of old programs that lose functionality under any version of NT will work properly. One of those is FontFiddler, the old kerning editor. It works under XP/Vista for editing TrueType fonts but can't even see a Type 1 font. I can fiddle a font under 9x in a VM and then use the font in XP or Vista.
