Microsoft To Ship Windows 7 "XP Mode" October 22 [news.cnet.com]
Microsoft said on Thursday that it has finished development work on the virtualized version of Windows XP that Windows 7 users can use to run programs that won't work on the newer operating system.

In a statement, Microsoft said that it has finalized the code for the free "XP Mode" and that the software will be made available on October 22, the same day that Microsoft launches Windows 7.

Computer makers will also be able to offer Windows XP Mode with their systems, Microsoft said.

I really like what they did with this. Should help corporate rollouts where you're waiting on slow vendors or non existent vendors to support legacy apps btter.
