One interesting feature of VMware is the Capture Movie option (see Figure 6).

Using this option, you can record the actions taking place within the virtual machine as a movie. This is useful for recording training videos or product demos. Figure 7 shows the recorded video playing in Windows Media Player.

Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 is another virtualization software application from Microsoft. It uses the same technology as Virtual PC. In fact, virtual machines created using Virtual PC can be used in Virtual Server. While Virtual PC and VMware are more focused on individual users, Virtual Server 2005 targets corporate clients who are looking for server consolidation: running multiple servers in one physical machine.
