Do You Use Windows 7’s XP Mode? [Poll Results]

Posted by Rich On July - 27 - 2010

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.

Last week I invited you to share your desktop and have a chance at winning a copy of Start Menu 7 Pro.  Here are the nine contestants. Pick your favorite desktop and vote for whomever you want to win.

You can view the entrants’ submissions and a short description about their desktop setup here.

The voting will close Sunday 11th April 2010, 11:59PM UTC

The winner will be announced shortly afterwards.
