An anonymous reader writes “This week, Microsoft published a patch that allows Windows XP Mode to run on PCs without hardware-assisted virtualization. Which begs the question: Why the bizarro requirement in the first place? Was it an honest attempt to deliver an ‘optimal’ user experience? Or simply a concession to the company’s jilted lover, Intel Corporation — ‘a kind of apology for royally screwing up with the whole Windows Vista “too fat to fit” debacle,’ as the blog post puts it.”
