comment Why can't I use two or more keyboards/mice at the same time on one computer?
The limitation? Well you're the first person I've ever heard of asking about it. There are no significant technical barriers, there's just almost nobody that wants it.

comment Why does a hard disk suddenly look to Windows as if it “needs to be formatted”?
+1, the concepts are all essentially the same. All file systems have a point where they being, if you lose that point, it's all gone.

comment What desktop chipsets support AMD's Rapid Virtualization Indexing?
The MB must be Intel VT-d compatible (VT 2nd Gen); I'm not sure what the difference is from VT-x (VT 1st Gen). Some boards might be compatible via updates; check with your MB manufacturer.

+1, correct. RVI and other NPT schemes only require CPU, Northbridge (integrated to CPU for AMD procs), and OS (hypervisor) support.

comment Changing hard disk with ssd, can I migrate contents so that I can switch drives without a hassle?
It depends on the partition setup you have before and after. Most people with XP just have one partiton, and the image will as well, so no changes necessary. If it's more complicated than that, you will probably have to make more changes.

The Virual PC for Win7 is no more limited than previous versions, and actuales comes with software for RemoteApp as well. The configuration options however are more 'hidden' than in previous verions of the software.

comment Can I install Windows OS (Windows 7) on a removable USB hard drive?
When Windows boots it resets all active USB connections, essentially disconnecting the USB drive, thus you need a hack like PWBoot to make this work.
