Thry are two different things - you're talking about the compatibity
mode built into the OS, but the other poster is talking about "Windows
XP mode" - which is basically a copy of XP running inside a Virtual PC
VM that's available as a download for the "business" variants of Win 7
(which are, not coincidentally, the ones that have XP downgrade rights
anyway).

@David Taylor

Virtual PC 2007 is XP and Vista, but it doesnt' support "XP Mode"
(unless you just create a VM and install XP into it).
OT: Did you ever work at a company called "Fieldtech Heathrow"?  I may
know you...
