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).
Yah as soon as i get to where i can download it i get the 404.
Funny. I just downloaded this yesterday. It's an evaluation copy, and expires on July 20th, 2007.
Here's a screenshot:

At 10:48 AM nonetheless.
Link worked earlier today when I posted it, wonder if they yanked it?

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
