Why Use Windows XP Mode? (Upgrade To Windows 7)

One of the more useful features of Windows XP Mode is that, because it is still a fully featured installation of Windows XP, it can be controlled in the same manner as a standard desktop installation of Windows XP. This becomes important if you are using server-based policy tools, such as Active Directory and Group Policy.
In addition, Windows XP Mode gives you complete protection in terms of application compatibility by providing 100% compatibility with an application that already runs on Windows XP.
The whole point of this exercise is ultimately to make sure that you can always run your applications in some form of a Windows 7 environment, whether that’s natively on the Windows 7 desktop or virtually by way of Windows XP Mode.
