The main negative is that most programs and peripherals not compatible with Vista are also not compatible with Windows 7. This is somewhat remedied by the inclusion of Windows XP Mode, but XP Mode is only available with the Professional and Ultimate versions of Windows 7, and in order to use it, a computer needs to have a processor supporting hardware virtualization.
ya i would expect the software problem to continue on with the Windows 7. Are there any software that works on vista but not on 7?
And i never heard of the xp mode. can youtell me more about it?
