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?

the netbook version will be little more than a few tweaks to battery life enhancements, having a few services not run on start up, less of the older print drives will included by default (aka drivers based on seriel and parrallel ports), and screen size optimizations. aside from that not to much, but thats really all thats needed.



Why not just have one version of the client, where you can select the deployment profile at installation?
