While upgrading to a new (as of 2010) operating system like Windows 7 carries lots of benefits with it, there is also one major drawback: Older versions of certain programs, such as Pinnacle Studio 9.3, may no longer function correctly, if at all. Microsoft includes a solution in the form of a "virtual machine" over the top of your new operating system that lets you run all your old programs with no trouble.
