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.

They must have a feeling Netbooks are not going to keep selling like they are. Or something else is afoot.

I don't see how they can make money selling a full version of Windows 7 on netbooks at like $10 or $20 a copy. (And I hear the prices are of netbooks are going lower)

Also if they are selling a full version of netbooks I am sure OEMS are going to want a similar price on low end PC's.

If starter edition becomes the defacto choice on all low end PC's, laptops and netbooks MS is going to have some real issues.

I guess we will have to wait to see what is up their sleeves.

Don't 'worry', their will be ARM based netbooks for even less, Microsoft's only response is Windows CE at this point.

CE against Android or full Linux. Who do you think will win?

Its like MS is being hit at all sides and has to do all things software and now electronics.
