    @AndyC: @evildictaitor: That's assuming that developers even use an API to do a version check. I think it was during one of the pre-Vista Channel9 videos that somebody from the compatibility team said that a lot of people just open up the registry and do a search for "Windows XP". Then they hard code in the first entry that comes up and use its presence as a version check.
