Re: Windows 7 will contain Windows XP (virtualized)
It seems like a decent move to me. Even if you don't use Virtual PC and use VMWare instead, you still get an XP License, which would be an extra cost if the company doesn't already have one for the machine. (Edit: since I'm not exactly sure how this will work I'm thinking you might only be able to use the license for Virtual PC on Windows 7) And if they didn't have VMWare they would also be saving on the cost to buy the licensing for that program. I don't think it's meant to be a permanent solution but more of a light push to businesses that can't decide whether to upgrade yet.
