Have you tried this? How well does it work?

The question is - how much will it cost when it is out of Beta... and will it be some competition for Laplink?

Really?!? I read this on their FAQ.

Does PickMeApp transfer applications from Window 7 to Windows XP ?
No. PickMeApp does not support a backward transfer. The following transfers are not supported

•Windows 7 to Windows XP.
•Windows 7 to Windows Vista.
•Windows Vista to Windows XP.
•64 bit platform to 32 bit platform

"Not supported" refers to support.

It doesn't mean it can't be done, just don't expect it and don't expect support about it.
