It's not Virtual PC that doesn't support Linux, it's that Linux doesn't support Virtual PC. Specifically, it is the dropped PS/2 mouse support (which was rather recent and ignorant of them -- alot of distros did it apparently, it might even be the kernel) and how Linux by default lamely uses 24 bit colour, which Virtual PC doesn't support. These problems make it incredibly difficult to install and use. While there is an acceptable workaround for the colour depth, the only workaround for the PS/2 mouse support disables internet access.
EDIT: Oh yeah. Yeah, I run Linux on Virtual PC. Ubuntu. An update disabled mouse support, and now I am forced to use a workaround which disables internet support to get my mouse back. It's really useless now that that has happenned. I also want to mention that Ubuntu is particularly horrible because it comes with Firefox, and further you cannot remove Firefox without destroying the operating system.
