I mean a virtual machine provides quite a bit of overhead so I kind of doubt performance might be optimal using XP Mode!!

If Win 7 would have been compatible without such workarounds I guess it would have been much better!

With Virtualization technologies embeded in our modern CPU it's really not a crap.
The only limitation is the total amount of RAM you have in your systeme and then, than amount of ram you can allocate to the VM. And with moderne PC the amount of RAM is not a real issue for performance, if you really need to, you can put 8 or 16GB in your System today!

I try all the new OS that cam out in VM for first instance, and today you can have full power in your VM. In ex. Seven run as fast on a VM than with an "hard installation" (no Aero glass because no 3D acceleration, but that's not the point).
For some "XP app" which doesn't have full compatibility in Seven virtualization is the best way to do.

I think Windows Xp must forgot and go to history of Best OS , and go to Windows 7 use. Not need xp mode. I think is the big mistake from Microsoft that mode.

Because XP is XP no more add OS on Windows 7. I think XP such as BEST OS go to history. And we who use Windows 7 to continue to use this windows. No need xp mode in win7 i think. That's my opinion.

Well I am sure it will not be used much. However for those few programs that don't work with 7 or as well as it should could use the XP mode to get it working!

Your opinon good. I can not find macedonian translate. You help me?

For anyone who had trouble understanding that, XP should not be included because if people wanted to use XP, then they would use it. Windows 7 is for the people who would rather use Windows 7. Then I asked him if he knew where I could find a macedonian translator
