virtual pc and linux - Mac Applications & Software

I'm told that it was possible to install linux under virtual pc. I see no reference to that on the connectix site. Now that MS owns virtual pc, is that functionality gone or just not mentioned?...

    It used to be possible to purchase a VPC with linux pre-installed.

    I believe it is still possible to install Linux on VPC but the software
    used to communicate with MacOS doesn't support Linux.

    The purpose is the same reason you'd install windows under VPC. Seems
    pretty much a waste of time to reboot your machine to do a quick check
    of something in linux, then reboot back into OSX. Maybe you have more
    leisure time than I do. :-)

    Step 1: Launch Virtual PC.

    Step 2: Install Liux exactly as you would on a "real" Windows machine.
