"Another new virtualization-based feature in version 2004 is an extension of the Windows Sandbox feature that made its debut in version 1903. Windows Sandbox is a simple virtual machine that allows you to test software in a safe environment, isolated from your working environment."

But can I put the Windows update in the sandbox? Big Grin | :-D

I am on my way to Virtual Machines. 95% of my work can be done within them, they are portable and allow me to be hardware agnostic. This is very important to me, since. Microsoft in it's somewhat dysfunctional thought process considers it a good idea to fold in driver updates now. For those of us who work on laptops, this is almost always a very bad idea.

The only downside to using VMWare is forgetting that VMWare will trail OS releases a few months. Always backup your Windows VMs before upgrading to the next OS release.
