Virtual PC 2004 is an x86 that was originally created by Connectix as a Macintosh program, and it was later ported to Windows 95/NT 4.0. Shortly afterwards, Microsoft bought the program and released Virtual PC 2004, and later Virtual PC 2007. They then released Windows Virtual PC which only worked on Windows 7. Eventually, it was replaced by Hyper-V. There's also a server variant of Virtual PC known as Virtual Server 2005 which added an Adaptec SCSI adapter.
