Reviews: Windows 7 – Virtual PC and WinXP Mode Comments

Just have time to re-install my Vista box to Windows 7.

My initial planning is using Windows 7 Virtual PC for my PoC Lab testing.

After I have installed Win7 and configured the Virtual PC. I found that it is only support Win32 Virtual Machine.

I am very disappeared to it.

And the so-called killer feature “WinXP Mode”. My comment is “that is a marketing word”.

It is a monster for pushing customer moving to Win7.

The cost is very high to maintain 2 OSs for every users.

Overall comments:
1. The interface of Virtual PC for Windows 7 is not good
2. It does not support 64bit platform OS.
3. Monster “WinXP mode” sound attractive. But actually, it is quite difficult to maintain it.
