Default 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:
