      Windows 7 Professional has XP mode but you have to download it from Microsoft.  It doesn't come installed.  Actually if you get a computer with Win7 Pro it might but mine came with Win7 Home Premium and I did the anytime upgrade to Pro.

      XP mode is really just Microsoft Virtual PC with an XP virtual computer installed.  It seems to work out well.  I used Virtual PC for DOS stuff on my Vista machine for a while and then switched to VirtualBox, which I liked a little better.  But since XP comes with this one I went with it.  They're both good

      Suggestion: If you're handy with virtual machines at all (VMWare has a free version) you could load up a virtual PC with windows XP and be sailing. 
      Also I believe (anybody out there confirm?) that Windows 7 has an "XP" mode I've heard of.  I just got to Windows 7, so I'll be finding all this out first-hand.

      I installed the demo yesterday on a new laptop and it wouldn't run.  Very weird.  I double click the icon to run it and nothing happens.  I played around a little and gave up and uninstalled it.
      My new laptop has 64 bit Windows 7 Pro so maybe that's why.  I don't know.

      Looks interesting. Is it worth the money?

      Looking at the demo.

Very nice graphics, easily moddable, lots of options and a very good AI opponent. After following development for more than a year I think this is the next great Empire game. A demo is available.
