Windows XP Mode will no longer require hardware virtualization technology to run. This change makes it extremely easy for businesses to use Windows XP Mode to address any application incompatibility roadblocks they might have in migrating to Windows 7.

Windows XP Mode will of course continue to use hardware virtualization technology such as Intel VT  or AMD-V if available. You can find more information and download the update which will go live later today at Windows XP Mode website.
