Windows By all early reports, Windows 8 is going to be a good operating system. Microsoft's hegemony may be crumbling in a mobile computing onslaught, but its core empire remains undimmed. However, whereas Windows 7 had three versions, Windows 8 will apparently be ballooning to 9 versions.

Sounds like a bug to me.

I have used many Win 7 Home Premium computers, and that OS simply does not have the limitation you describe.

Maybe you're referring to WIn 7 Home Basic, which is only available in "emerging markets", but even that shoudl not have the limitation you describe. I've never used it, but such a limitation makes no sense. If that is indeed by design, then it is indeed horrible policy by MS wrt that version of the OS.
