You don't likely want to try to VM your media center. First of all, you want to "see" your media center full-screen (which you can only do via a hyper-v window or RDP, which I doubt you want to do), and video/audio drivers are limited to the Hyper-V integration tools. If your trying to use WMC as a media server and not a media client you're likely fine, but if you are expecting to use it as a client, you probably won't get the results your looking for.
Windows 7 Virtual PC will not support x64 (if I remember correctly), so you won't be able to run the NOS necessary to run Exchange using Virtual PC. This means updating to Windows 8 (but then dealing with the lack of media center as you had mentioned), or using another VM tool. I ran VMWare on Windows 7 with a Windows Server x64 and it did the job.
I'm using this kind of configuration for years.
I started actually back on XP time, with the host running XP Media Center edition, with MS Virtual Server 2005 installed, which hosted a Win Server 2003 (for web server, ftp, SVN, mail server, etc).
Currently, my configuration is host running Windows 7 Ultimate (with Media Center) and VMWare Server, running VM with Win Server 2008R2
As a suggestion on VM server, it has two VHDs - one for OS and applications, and one for data, (where I have actually stored the FTP server root, the web sites, SVN repositories and mailserver root folder)
Nothing to do with your query. Virtual Box does not play at all when HyperV or VMWare are running. In fact, you will get BSOD. VMWare and HyperV don't play together either. VMWare and Virtual PC play together.
What peripherals do you need to share? Some VM engines want exclusive access to perihperals; others are willing to share.
Yes but that's because they're all 3 trying to do the same thing with the same hardware - i.e. opening it up for a virtual machine inside themselves. It would be just as silly to use the same port number across IP for ftp, smpt, pop, http, etc. You'd get corrupt data whenever something sends while something else is also sending, or a timeout.
Only with VM's it's much worse than a network port - stuff like shared resources (CPU cores, RAM areas, Discs, etc.) will not be handled in a consistent manner. DO NOT install 2 or more of those on the same machine, and NEVER run 2 together, pick one and make several VMs inside it.
The Windows Runtime is the API developers use for building Windows Store apps, sometimes
called WinRT. Don't confuse it with Windows RT, the ARM version of Windows 8. The Windows
Runtime API ensures apps can meet the design goals around portability, performance, and
trust and with it Microsoft can also ensure ...

Over years I've heard 3 version for NT
1. N-10 === N-Ten, the codename for that version
2. Northern Telecom (Today Nortel), it has something to do with some patents that Microsoft used from NT in the low level
3. New Technology
I'm not questioning your powers of observation; I'm merely remarking upon the paradox of asking a masked man who he is. (V)
Dunno, I thought he might this morning, but there has only been one actual and one almost repost. The others have been more or less stuff relating to him. Leslie's death was re-reported for several days after it happened IIRC
The amount of energy necessary to refute bullshit is an order of magnitude bigger than to produce it.
O Captain! my Captain! our fearful trip is done,
The ship has weather’d every rack, the prize we sought is won,
The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting,
While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring;
But O heart! heart! heart!
O the bleeding drops of red,
Where on the deck my Captain lies,
Fallen cold and dead.
O Captain! my Captain! rise up and hear the bells;
Rise up—for you the flag is flung—for you the bugle trills,
For you bouquets and ribbon’d wreaths—for you the shores a-crowding,
For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning;
Here Captain! dear father!
The arm beneath your head!
It is some dream that on the deck,
You’ve fallen cold and dead.
My Captain does not answer, his lips are pale and still,
My father does not feel my arm, he has no pulse nor will,
The ship is anchor’d safe and sound, its voyage closed and done,
From fearful trip the victor ship comes in with object won;
Exult O shores, and ring O bells!
But I with mournful tread,
Walk the deck my Captain lies,
Fallen cold and dead.
