Windows Windows XP Mode, the virtualisation tool currently in beta for Windows 7, only works on processors with virtualisation extensions, known as AMD-V and Intel VT-x. Microsoft made this clear from the get-go, but still various news websites regurgitated it as "news" yesterday that some Intel processors do not support XPM. Twenty-four hours down the road, and Intel had a few things to say about this.

Unless you buy the more expensive copy of Windows i.e not starter;home or premium...or on a significant proportion of processors. Its not a storm in anything just a fact.

So as a form of backward compatibility for anyone not rolling out new high powered machines a waste of time.
