Microsoft is not real helpful in giving straight forward answers on how to properly license Windows for use in a VDI enviroment.  I would like to know if anyone is using VDI in a production enviroment with Windows XP and/or Windows Vista VMs?  If so I would like to know what you have found from Microsoft in the way of licensing for this setup?

As far as I know, you need an XP or Vista license for every instance.
