XP mode RTMs -Available on 22. oct

It seems that Microsoft is going to release XP mode in the same time as GA of Windows 7:

Quote:
A recent post on the Windows 7 Team Blog states that Windows XP Mode was released to manufacturing on October 1 and that the final version of the solution is expected to become available for download as soon as Windows 7 hits the market, on October 22, to be more precise. The RTM version of this solution is meant to offer OEMs the possibility to include the XP Mode within the PCs they will bring to the market, the post also notes.

Pricing? XP Mode is free.

Pardon my ignorance but will this be a separate purchase for those who already have the RTM of Windows 7?

Edit: Just saw swarfega's post. Free stuff ftw!

OK. Since it is not included in lesser versions of 7, will it work on Home Premium?

I am not understanding the bundling if it is free.

XP Mode wont be available for home premium as HP doesnt have support for virtualisation. XP Mode will be available for Pro and ultimate as a free download.

I think XP mode is downladable through microsoft.com (don't know if it's going to be d/l trough WU too!)

XP mode is free and it works ONLY on Pro/Business/Ultimate Windows 7 edition's.

Thank you for the clarification.

But, you are dealing with the Antman, so I will swarfle instead of google...

HP doesnt have support for virtualisation

Surely, VirtualBox will run in Home Premium?
