Q. How does this licensing policy affect products such as Microsoft Windows XP Professional?
A. Microsoft Windows XP Professional and Microsoft Windows XP Home are not affected by this policy as they are licensed per installation and not per processor. Windows XP Professional can support up to two processors regardless of the number of cores on the processor. Microsoft Windows XP Home supports one processor.
Obs: O Windows XP Home Edition tem suporte a apenas um processador, mas com Service Pack 2 apresenta 2 processadores no "Task Manager", conforme figura anexa.
