Summary

Windows XP is the result of the merging of two very different operating system kernels. Because of this, programs written for previous Windows versions may not run on Windows XP. In this chapter you have learned about some of the features built into Windows XP that can help older programs run without user intervention. You also have learned how to step in, when necessary, to use compatibility modes and fixes to help older programs make the transition to Windows XP.

In the next chapter, we will take a quick look at some of the traditional applications and accessories you have grown accustom to using in a Windows operating system, and point out how they were integrated into Windows XP.
