Software for Virtualizing XP on Windows 7

On Tuesday Microsoft released software that uses virtualization to allow people to run applications in Windows 7 as if they are running in XP, making it easier for applications written for older versions of the OS to run on Windows 7.

The feature is similar to Apple’s Classic mode, introduced on Mac OS X, that allowed people to run legacy Mac applications on OS X, which was a drastic change to the platform and would not have run older Mac applications without the feature.

Whats this mean for us?  Simple, download the application and run your XP apps in Windows 7.  Download it here.
