Windows Windows 7 Starter Edition, a sort of My First Operating System, always carried with it a massive braindead bug feature that limited the amount of applications you could simultaniously have open at just three. Yes, past tense, because someone over in Redmond apparently looked up and smelled the roses, and suggested removing this silly limitation. And so they did, according to Paul Thurrot.

"There is still no word from Microsoft as to what version will actually be the preferred option for netbooks in the western world."

thats not true, their aim is for home or premium. they made that clear when they said it flat out. it was the whole purpose for limiting the starter edition in the first place, forcing you to pay out more for more functionality.

marketing tactics aside, i am glad they did away with the 3 app limit. the OEM's have been in discussion with them on the for over 2 months claiming it would make it hard for them to sell the OS and would lead to many returns and customer dissatisfaction.
