Windows Let's combine the two most popular topics on the internet today into one: Windows 7 on netbooks. Microsoft has already confirmed that it will ship a version of Windows 7 designed for netbooks, the popular small laptops that appear to be the only bright spot in an otherwise abysmal PC industry climate. However, with various reports indicating that Windows 7 already runs fine on netbooks, this raises the question: what exactly is Microsoft planning?

I don't see why people care about this. All 99% of people have to care about is the difference between home basic and home premium, and that can be explained in under 20 seconds.


You mean "Fancy graphics and Media Center"?

Anyway, that's not the point. "Home Basic" has no real reason to exist beyond "Windows Vista from $99". The only PCs that ship with it are super-budget models.

That 99% of people should not even have to care about the difference between "Home Basic" and "Home Premium". They should just get "Home" (which would be roughly equivalent to "Home Premium").
