The fact that XP Mode is only for Pro and ultimate Edition should what the point.

For most people, software are updated to Vista/Seven and there is a really little number of software that doesn't work one Vista/Seven.

But for professionnals it's totally different. Lot of them have "pro" soft coded .. hum hum with the feet ... And this software are often really expensive because made specially for one client.
It's the main reason for non-upgrade in enterprise, but with XP mode no more excuse

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
Sorry for bad english :S

The hardware you are talking about (especially if this is built into W7 itself) will run this without batting an eyelid. Great move by MS BTW.

Don't forget the way Virtual machines actually run means you can in no way compare their needs 1:1 with a real machine.

You can still do an awful lot on a 512MB XP virtual machine that you wouldn't even THINK of trying on a 512MB Real machine.

Sorry but you do realize that if you want 512MB of RAM in a VM you need that on top of the memory to run the host OS. This is my point. A baseline host OS now a days needs minimum of 1GB. I prep laptop images with windows sysprep and a number of other tools. I know exactly how this works.
If you are going to run a VM that will eat 512 MB of RAM, not including the VM app itself, you now need 1.5GB of RAM to successfully run the system. Se we are still talking about a RAM upgrades. And you sound as if you are talking about simply running a VM and that is it. Well lets say you are VMing the SAP frontend. Then running Notes, MS Word, MS Powerpoint, a couple IE windows for web based apps, a few proprietary in house apps. Well now we are talking about running a VM along side a heck of a lot more then just running a VM.
Sorry but the reality is that you do need more machine if you are VMing. Esp in the RAM department. And my other points still stand on the patching issue.
