Need to Virtualize Vista Home Versions?

This just in - Microsoft is finally easing their license restrictions that prevented you from installing Vista Home Basic and Vista Home Premium in a virtual environment: http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post/20080121-microsoft-relents-vista-virtualization-ban-lifted.html

This will be great news for some of my past clients. I have no idea why Microsoft erected this false barrier to Vista Home adoption in the first place. Developers test in virtualized environments like VMWare - preventing them from testing their products on Home editions of Windows Vista does the end user a great disservice.
