Virtual Server 2005 contest (nothing to win)

A little challenge for you guys. Install and run Virtual Server, connect to the machines using the VMRC client. Throw away your mouse (or smash your laptop touchpad - if you still have a guarantee on it) as any real hardcode developer should have done for many years already (I tend to avoid the mouse as much as I can in fact). Now try to find a way to break out of this window to ALT-TAB to another window on your host OS (e.g. you want to swich - without a mouse - between the VRMC client in which you manage a virtual machine running ISA Server 2004 and want to swicht to a local command prompt window to see you did the configuration right to avoid ICMP ping messages coming in to the server).

Prizes: none (it's a challenge you know :p)

Tip (not useful :d): I have a blog post on the same "problem" (with a solution) in Virtual PC on http://community.bartdesmet.net/blogs/bart/archive/2005/01/11/568.aspx.
