I really love Windows 7 in all its 64-bit goodness. I get all my memory. It’s fast, it’s convenient.
But there’s one thing that I don’t like – my poor broadband modem isn’t yet supported. I need my broadband modem, because several of my clients just won’t let me jack-in to their network.
So the first time I dug into “Windows XP Mode” I came up a bit disappointed. What? It’s just Virtual-PC? Well, yes and no. It’s a newer, better version of Windows XP that I didn’t have to build myself. And… wait for it… I get to use my USB broadband modem in the the virtual machine.
