Emulate XP under Vista
I'm in the process of buying a new PC and choosing Vista as the operating
system. In the case where I have problem adapting to the new Vista's look &
feel and features (I'm an experienced XP user), would it possible to emulate
XP under my new Vista operating system?

==============================
One possible solution would be to install
WinXP in a Virtual Machine...have a look
at the following links:

run multiple operating systems at

Not really. Best you can do is the classic look. Just get used to it
and move on, it's far easier.
