I see that there is going to be a XP mode in the near future but will only be available in the Professional and ultimate versions.
I sincerely hope it is available in all versions.

Right now, with the RC, people can download and run the XP mode, given their processors can handle the virtualization.

Here's a link to the Microsoft page which should give you all the info you'd ever need about it:

Hi Ron,

I have a question about the XP Mode in Windows 7.

There are many applications that we run in the Malware Removal Forums that are incompatible with a 64bit OS. I personally would like to have a 64bit Windows 7 platform but have been a little hesitant due to my work with 32 bit systems. I will not uncommonly run these 32 bit apps on my machine to achieve the desired effect before instructing a user to do the same.

So if I am understanding this correctly...the Virtual Windows XP mode runs as a 32bit OS within Windows 7 64bit so I should be able to test my 32 bit apps there without difficulty and still enjoy the 64 bit platform for my personal use. True?

Thanks for your input,
