Windows 2008 Server r2 64bit application compatibilities

I have just installed a new Windows 2008 Server r2 64bit on my Terminal Server and I have a question about compatibilities.
I have installed Microsoft Office 2010  32 bit  and did some testing from an Microsoft xp computer and the Terminal connection worked fine and was able to configure Outlook to my Exchange 2003 Server with no problems.
Now, when I read Microsoft Articles it says that Windows 2008 Server r2 64bit  is  not compatible with WIndows Xp only Windows 7.
Can somebody give me some insight. Do I have anything to worry about when I get into full production with my XP clients?

I believe you can connect fine but some features are not available:


What articles are you referring to? Is there any possibility that they were referring to SQL server 2008 R2 rather than windows server 2008 R2?
