(3/5/14 Edit for clarity: This is in reference to converting a legally owned XP installation to run virtualized on the same PC hardware it is already installed on. Not to clone XP for redistribution. Thanks Fu!)
Win XP is coming up on its end of life support soon. I know I can (and will be) virtualizing my XP installs to run under Ubuntu. There are millions of non-tech savvy XP users out there and they don't know what they are going to do. And even if they knew what to do, they wouldn't know how.
A. Any best practices/methods I can use to convert my own XP, Vista (or sure I run it) and Win 7 to run under Ubuntu?
B. Anybody know if there are any plans to develop a live CD/DVD to virtualize an existing XP install and run it under Ubuntu?
Seems like it could be a nice way to expand the user base of Ubuntu. If not a live edition to automate the process perhaps a link on the front page of Ubuntu.com to a detailed article on how to do it with links to techs willing to assist freely or for a fee.
Thanks for any thoughts or assistance in advance!
