Regarding how "XP MODE" works in Windows 7
Posted on 2011-03-15
I tried out Windows 7 on someone else's pc, and was a little surprised at its
Vista-like character. I HATE Vista and anything too much like it is a no-go for me.
My sister just told me that there is, on Windows 7 something called "XP mode", which she said comes free in the W7 pro version, but for the home version, you have to buy a key for a little under a hundred bucks to turn on that capability.
MY question is, if you have Windows 7, and are running in this "XP mode", does that mean it totally emulates an XP os, or does it only do SOME things in 'xp mode' ?
I'd appreciate and welcome any comments from anyone with experience with this.
I have to consider all this for 7 pc's, and really want to avoid screwing anything up.
THANK YOU !
