I am just wondering if anyone have used any of these two piece of software VMware or MS Virtual PC, which is better?

Also, since we're on the same topic... What are some of your favorite software that you use.

My List:
FireFox -- great browser
Steam -- wish more companies would use something like this (AutoUpdate)
PCAnywhere -- Nice tool to use for connect to a computer without monitor
DesktopX -- Unique look
Nero -- I like it
Others

I had used both software in past, i liked more VMWare since had some advantages over VirtualPC, but i think anyway both software are now owned by Microsoft?

VMware as more powerful while VirtualPC faster, but i haven't tried the latest builds to know if that is still accurate

VMWare was owned by EMC not MS.
VMWare is quite powerful than Virtual PC, and the performance is better too.
But I did not test Virtual PC 2004 yet. No sure if it has some major improvement.

Personally, I use VMWare to build up my developing environment and testing environment.

VMWare 5.0? That sounds very interesting, what didn't liked was the fact that they couldn't support native CD/DVD drives, either in terms of reading/writing, maybe this now has been fixed?

Hm....Just attach my old CyQve CDR with USB cable into my host machine, and then the VMWare guest machine detect it.

See below:
