Ubuntu in Windows 7 VPC (and XP, OS/2, and Win 3.1)

It was raining a few weeks ago and I got a little bored. For some reason I wanted to load up OS/2 Warp as a Windows 7 Virtual PC instance.  You may recall that Windows 7 has XP Mode, but that doesn’t mean you cannot run other operating systems.  Check out the screen shot below. The host OS is Windows 7 (32-bit 3GB RAM). Ubuntu, XP, and OS/2 Warp 4 are running as guest instances.  Look closely and you will see Windows 3.1 running within OS/2 as “Win-OS/2.”
