This seems like a crazy deal -

Microsoft has decided to offer a free Virtual PC image of Windows XP SP2 that is already activated. The reason they are offering this is so that users will be able to test out websites on Internet Explorer 6 SP2 because you can’t have two versions of IE installed on a single computer. With the recent release of Internet Explorer 7 many users were complaining about not knowing how their site looked in IE 6.

Odd. First link doesn't work (401). Second link works but clicking the "Continue" button to validate is not found (404).

Funny. I just downloaded this yesterday. It's an evaluation copy, and expires on July 20th, 2007.
Here's a screenshot:

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
