Vista Ultimate x64, Windows 7 RC 7100

So, RC1 is out now? The official one is out? And official beta is if you grabbed the download/key while they were giving them out to the first 2 million people right?

I haven't been following this lately, I want details

Since this feature will be offered as a method of upgrading to W7 whilst still running XP I doubt that MS will make people buy brand new XP licenses.

There must be some sort of "Integrated" mechanism however otherwise what is the difference between this and just downloading Virtual PC and installing a Windows XP VM in the "Normal way".

As I previously posted an "Integrated" pre-installed option would be the best where you could enter an existing serial number of an XP system you have already purchased - so you would only have to install your applications --much better for corporates.

I'm waiting for the details -- in theory this would be an incredibly useful feature for a lot of businesses - apart from the fact that they could even upgrade their PC's gradually whilst still running the same software.
