Use virtualization software? Check out VirtualBox 2.1, which adds some exciting new features:
* Support for 64-bit guests on 32-bit host operating systems. Testing a 64-bit desktop is now much easier thanks to VirtualBox supporting 64-bit guests on 32-bit hosts. It’s pretty impressive that this is even possible!
* Experimental 3D acceleration via OpenGL. Don’t get too excited about 3D acceleration yet. For now only OpenGL on a 32-bit Windows guest is supported. DirectX support is planned, which means that 3D gaming in a VM could become possible.
