Secret: Windows Virtual PC is free for all Windows 7 users, but Windows XP Mode is a perk of the Professional, Enterprise, and Ultimate versions of the operating system. The next sections take a look at both of these new Windows 7 components.
Tip: Windows Virtual PC is the latest version of Microsoft's venerable Virtual PC product line.
Because new versions of Windows are often incompatible with legacy applications, a virtual machine environment running an older version of Windows and those incompatible legacy applications can be quite valuable.
Best of all, in such cases, users are often less apt to notice any performance issue because older operating systems tend to require fewer resources anyway.
The only important consideration, indeed, is the microprocessor: in order to run Windows Virtual PC (and, thus, XP Mode as well), you need a microprocessor that supports hardware-assisted virtualization.
