Tried out windows xp-mode (or whatever it's called) and it's actually pretty good. It goes beyond the whole virtual machine scenario, and actually integrates XP with your 7 desktop.

Still obviously a lot of work to be done, but generally pretty good. Ran with no complaints on my a64 3200+ with 1gb ram.

Any chance Microsoft is going to release a XP mode of XP 64?

The wrong package was posted on Microsoft Connect for a few minutes, if thats where you downloaded it, i would uninstall it because its not the official release and may even have been a bad build.

Just so you guys know, he's doing the same thing on Neowin, it's apparent he stumbled upon this, and is trying to increase the size of his e-penis. Either that or he can't mentally comprehend the term "Where did you get it?".

Oh Hai.

I have answered your question within Neowin's rules.

I might be drunk, and this might be slightly funny.

But it is out there.

(oh, and my e-penis is tiny, ya know? Need one of those viagra emails.)

I totally agree with you. He want to show off that he has it but then after everyone is over interested, he just laugh to himself. I really hate it when people boast about what they have and wouldn't share it.

Like Hiroshi said, he is also boasting the same thing on Neowin: http://www.neowin.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=765192

This is probably done using a photoshop.

You're wrong. This is a valid exercise. While it may not be legitimate, no-one has stated a valid reason why not.

I am impressed.

Not bad, but where's your titlebar blur?

Now that's one even I had not noticed. Well done.

I was expecting people to pick up on the fact that the XP windows weren't on the superbar.

Virtuabox ftw.

I've actually though of that but I don't know its icon look like. I thought it was the green thing on the superbar. Anyhow, it was fun. How did you keep the blur intact?

Hell, I could do that in paint. Take a screenshot of Explorer in XP classic mode, display it in 7 and take a screenshot (to get the blur effect), close the paint window, take a second screenshot (to get the blur effect to the left of the explorer window which would have been covered up by the paint toolbars), then cut and paste the rest of the explorer window and save.

Or maybe he really did just signup after seeing the link on Neowin? I know I saw that image on Neowin then came here to check if it had leaked...

I guess its safe to say it hasn’t.

Right, I read the neowin link upthere and saw he was a member from there, where he also
posted with the same overtone, spoilt bratt syndrome, someone has something he doesn't,
& because the said person wouldn't share, he was ridiculed for posting the screen.
It's like, share or your going to be made out to be an idiot. 8-)

Discuss the screens by all means, but if you persist with the attacks against each other, the topic will have to be locked.

My guess is VirtualBox. Possibly MED-V as well.

I also think he came from neowin. Remember to give respect to new members; we don't want to scare them off you know.

This jimmy guy IS a new member. I say he needs a warning. You can't rag on people until you've been here a while.

I'm 100% sure that's not XPM since there's no taskbar entry for Windows Virtual PC.

Jimmy guy, I've been a member of forums since osba, I happen to know that tim, the original
poster here, didn't need to be told by someone who joined just to make ONE post, that
he was posting to increase the size of his e-penis.
Judging by the posts made by Hiroshi on neowin, he has an attitude because he can't have
what he thought tim had, regardless of wether it was faked or otherwise.
People trash tims post and that's ok, but when someone sticks up for tim, he's the bad guy,
what a joke. :?
Go ahead and warn/ban me. I wont miss the place I can assure you, you all need to grow up.
Dont warn Hiroshi though, he's only joined just to take the mickey out of tim. 8-)
