Windows 7 To Have ‘Windows XP Mode’

Here’s some great news for all of you Windows XP lovers out there. It was just announced this weekend that Microsoft has designed a ‘Windows XP Mode’ for windows 7! This feature will allow someone to run a windows XP compatible program if it doesn’t work on windows 7 normally. Microsoft is hoping that by offering this Windows XP mode, they will be able to convince more people to move to windows 7 and toss that old XP machine.

Unfortunately, there is some bad news. The rumor is that this XP mode will only be available on the Professional and Ultimate versions of the Windows 7. This means that the home editions, that most people use, will not have this feature. Well, here’s hoping that they will change their mind on this little decision and let all of us have this awesome feature.
