XP Mode

I haven't tried it yet, but is XP mode any different that just running Virtual PC with XP installed on it?

In other words, XP mode gives you a limited XP license. But is there more than that?

Re: XP Mode

Not that I can tell. I have an application that won't run in Win 7 so I have it installed in Virtual XP.
