“We’re announcing an update to Windows XP Mode today that will make it a more accessible to PCs in small and midsize businesses who want to migrate to Windows 7 Professional but have applications that still require Windows XP. Windows XP Mode will no longer require hardware virtualization technology to run. This change makes it extremely easy for businesses to use Windows XP Mode to address any application incompatibility roadblocks they might have in migrating to Windows 7.”
Windows XP Mode No Longer Requires Hardware Virtualisation

I was wondering when this would come up, since we’ve all been able to run XP in a VM without hardware virtualization and this “XP mode” targets users reluctant to migrate to windows 7 ’cause of compatibility problems with their pcs bought in the XP era, where hardware virtualization practically didn’t exist.
Wasnt that supposed to be the first criteria for doing that crappy 32 bit xp virtualization anyways! sheesh I was expecting them to give me an x64 based XP
