Windows 7's Virtual XP Mode a Support Nightmare?

fltsimbuff Eh, Where is the problem? (413 comments)

I honestly don't see anything wrong with this. The people supporting the PCs still have control of the software running on them. If you don't want to have to support XP, then you just use all software that is Windows 7 compatible. If something you absolutely need isn't compatible, then you still have to run XP one way or another.

This simply provides more options to admins, and there's nothing bad about that.

MS Needs to convince them that their new products are worth it.

I noticed this yesterday and removed their servers from our rotation for our internal LAN to prevent malware issues. I reported the issue to both their tech support line, and abuse E-mail address and have yet to receive a helpful response a day later. Does anyone out there have experience with getting your ISP to take these reports seriously?"

Microsoft to use Family Guy to market Windows 7

fltsimbuff fltsimbuff writes  |  more than 5 years ago

fltsimbuff (606866) writes "Microsoft really seems to be preparing for a hard marketing push for the release of Windows 7. First the "Windows 7 Party Pack" and now they are partnering with Family Guy. Anyone want to take a stab at what they are going to do next? I personally hope Peter re-enacts the famous Windows USB demonstration..."
