OMB Helps Agencies Test Windows Configuration With Virtual Machines
"The Office of Management and Budget has released a set of virtual machines that will allow agencies to test to their software against OMB's standard configuration for Microsoft Windows. The downloadable software is a virtualization container with either a full implementation of Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2 or Vista. Both versions are configured to OMB's Federal Desktop Core Configuration (FDCC). Agencies can install their own software within the virtual version of Windows to check and correct incompatibilities. In addition to the test copies, the FDCC Web site also includes technical information and a section answering frequently asked questions."
