Windows 7 XP mode gets tested

The Tech Report briefly tested the XP Mode in Windows 7, you can check it out over here.
So, even though it's easy to install, XP Mode feels a tad counter-intuitive in the way it operates. Add to that the lack of support for "Home" editions of Windows 7 or processors without hardware virtualization support, and it becomes clear this tool won't be much help to folks who aren't enthusiasts or business users backed by qualified IT staff.
