To answer a number of questions around XP Mode and MED-V. I have borrowed some of the FAQ. I think we will see more and more of this going forward. Generic versions of new technologies won’t have the enterprise management features that larger companies may want to deploy. Another way of looking at this as standard vs advanced. I think of XP Mode and MED-V lite.
MED-V and Windows XP Mode service different audiences and solve different business problems:
Windows XP Mode is specifically designed to help small businesses users to run their Windows XP applications on their Windows 7 desktop.
· Microsoft Enterprise Desktop Virtualization (MED-V) is designed for IT Professionals.
Thanks to Danny Beck for this clarification.
