    Hi Guys/Gals,

    Has anyone tried the Windows XP Mode in Win 7 yet? I have to say it's pretty good, I'm running the full version of Office 2003 (virtualised) and Office 2007 side by side, as I've only just downloaded and started to play around with it this evening, without any problems.

    Ok, your processor has to support either Intel or AMD's virtualisation technology, so not all modern day CPU's will run this.

    So my question, has anyone come across any software packages that does not run?

    I run OpenOffice in Vista mode on Windows 7.
    So far I did not come across software which does not work either in XP or Vista mode.However I have tried just about 4 programs to run in this mode.
    I love the "mode options".
    I am thinking as well what about antivirus software? Most are not working yet on Windows 7.
    At this moment I am using AVG which has got Windows 7 version.

    I have the 64bit version of the OS installed... and at this moment I haven't really seen much of the windows xp mode.. I have installed it to see how programs work in compatability mode and everything seems to be okay. I'll do some more test but it does look pretty interesting...
