Windows 7 XP Mode Gets Closer For Some [pcworld.com]
The barrier for using XP Mode virtualization in Windows 7 just got lower. Unfortunately, for millions of Windows 7 users, the barrier is still high enough to exclude them from leveraging the XP Mode functionality.

Microsoft recognized that the vast majority of its customer-base still relies on the legacy Windows XP operating system, and wanted to give those customers incentive to upgrade to Windows 7 by providing a means of maintaining backward compatibility. Businesses that rely on legacy hardware and software that won't work under Windows 7 can still use it in a virtualized Windows XP SP3 environment
