Windows XP Mode virtualization-ready for Windows 7

Microsoft wants to ensure that the shortcomings of the Windows Vista do not mar the future of the upcoming Windows Seven and therefore it has readied the Windows XP Mode Virtualization . Also, it realizes that the XP was its best operating system until date and therefore it is important to develop a virtualization process that allows users to run legacy Windows XP applications on Windows 7.

The virtualization technology is specially designed bearing in mind the small and mid-size business users and as per the latest details from Microsoft, the software is ready for manufacturing.

The XP mode will be released on October 22 which is the also the date for the release of Windows 7. Depending on their own convenience, users could download it from Microsoft.com or get it from direct PC makers.

This will be a software which will come in handy when the Application Compatibility Toolkit will also fail to make the older applications work with Windows 7.

Windows 7 users will not require a license (Software Assurance) to get the XP mode. [via: Technologizer]
