  • Windows 7 application compatibility feature - Windows XP Mode

    Nice reading:

    PM is built on the next generation Microsoft Virtual PC 7 product line, which requires processor-based virtualization support (Intel and AMD) to be present and enabled on the underlying PC, much like Hyper-V, Microsoft's server-side virtualization platform. However, XPM is not Hyper-V for the client. It is instead a host-based virtualization solution like Virtual PC; the hardware assistance requirement suggests this will be the logical conclusion of this product line from a technological standpoint. That is, we fully expect future client versions of Windows to include a Hyper-V-based hypervisor.

      BTW, Sun Virtual Box has something very similar. You can use it to seamlessly integrate the applications from a VM onto your machine.

        Sweet. just read the Blog and hope that means Edlin.com and friends will finally get removed for the new operating systems. This will finally give MS the chance to do an Apple and write a totally new O/S that will not be dragged down by the legacy crap. Looking forward to Windows 8 now. Been waiting for this since DOS was removed from the O/S.
        1 1 was a racehorse.
        2 2 was 1 2.
        1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
        2 2 1 1 2

          That thought never occurred to me. This is a perfect mechanism to enable MSFT to start over from scratch. Maybe they'll build the new OS on BSD too...
