Damn You Microsoft

I finally had enough of the Windows XP Mode and Virtual PC images that Microsoft setup for Windows 7. Drag and Drop disappeared and all the developers on Microsoft's MSDN message board couldn't tell me why. I used that all the time. Especially testing software...

I've got about 15 virtual machines setup under various known scenarios. The only way to transfer files over without drag and drop was sharing folders or setting up an FTP server or whatever. It was a pain.

So I uninstalled Windows XP Mode and reinstalled Virtual PC 2007 with Service Pack 1 and I'm happy again.
