A few days ago, I asked you if you use Windows 7’s XP Mode. Thank you to those who took part in the poll. Here’s what you said:

What Did I Learn from This?

I learned a lot from this poll and I’m glad I asked the question. Specifically, I learned that a lot of you use XP Mode (even in the home) and I also learned that a lot of you don’t know what XP mode is.

What’s Next?

Expect to see some guides in the near future on the following (subject to change) topics:

  • What is XP Mode?
  • How to improve performance when using XP Mode.
  • How to share files between your host machine and XP Mode.

Thank you again to everyone who took part in the poll.

    I would be curious as to what people actually use XP Mode for. Are there certain aplications?

    I think these days it's mainly non-commercial applications used within corporations.

    Web design, run all the browsers, and multiple versions of each without having a bunch of crap installed on the main system =D
