The Difference between Windows XP Mode and MED-V


After making available for download Windows Virtual PC and Windows XP Mode Release Candidate (RC), Microsoft has come to find out that most customers out there are confused about one thing: should they use Windows XP Mode or should they use MED-V (Microsoft Enterprise Desktop Virtualization)? To address this confusion the Redmond-based software giant has provided a detailed presentation of what sets these two software applications apart.

Windows XP Mode is an integral part of Windows 7 Professional, Windows 7 Enterprise and Windows 7 Ultimate and is meant for the small business user. The software creates a virtual Windows XP environment by leveraging Windows Virtual PC and a preconfigured Windows XP; you can run old(er) apps in the virtual XP environment. Support for multi-threading and USB devices is provided by Windows XP Mode as well.
