Windows 7 will contain Windows XP (virtualized)
 
This is very interesting post:

Windows 7 will contain license and installation files for virtualized Windows XP (via modified Virtual PC) , including "unity mode" known from VMware Workstation.

You will be able to run Windows 7 apps and Windows XP apps side by side, without paying for VMware and/or XP license:

Just read about this on Gizmodo. I'm honestly really surprised at the latest build of Windows 7, some really cool features. It looks like M$ may finally redeemed themselves of Vista after all! ;)

So Vmware isn't free at all, thoought so which sucks since their others free.

This is good for those of us who use older software like quickbooks or lotus.

VMware Player is free, Workstation (which I use daily) is not.

Anyway, this is big step - virtualization made (really) easy for everybody.

And I like this idea very much - Microsoft will not have to carry older Windows versions compatibility burden, meaning better, cleaner, and faster OS for all "Win-7 compatible" apps.

I hate to admit it, but 7 is going to be a god send to the OS community.

There hasent been anything as robust as this since the ME 2k days going to XP from 98.

I shook a stick at Vista when it came out gave it some rev, buyt this is going to be A in this kings book.

where did you read that? I hard that it will be a seperate download, it will not be included when you buy windows 7. It will be free, but you will have to download it seperatly for MS.

As of right now, it appears the XP compatibility mode won’t come in the box with Windows 7. Instead, it will be made available as a free download for users with the professional, enterprise, or ultimate versions of Windows 7.

Isn't it obvious Vista was a stepping stone towards Win 7? :lol:

I mean, Windows 7 still has the Vista framework. It's just modified to run a lot better on a wider range of hardware.

Vista Second Edition basically.

best clue is the is Server OS.

Server 2008 based on Vista Sp1
Server 2008 R2 based on Windows 7

They basically had to change the name for consumer level OS because of rather lower intelegence of general consumers, and initial bad publicity around vista.

That's a shame. Vista's bad rep is not deserved imo.

Isn't Win 7 actually Windows 6.1?
