Windows 7 includes a virtual XP environment

Microsoft announced that Windows 7 will include a virtual environment for Windows XP for backward compatibility for applications . . . that’s awesome! This is the first time they’ve relied on virtualization (processor-level virtualization in this case) to solve compatibility issues, and I think it’s a good move and shows improvement in Microsoft’s thinking. The virual OS will have service pack 3 installed and comes with a full license, so you don’t even have to worry about acquiring a license for it.

    There has to be a catch someplace or another. Microsoft is no good at getting things right the first time.
