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.

That was their idea, it seems like an okay limitation, that most people could live with, to keep the poor wanting a real version.
However somewhere along the line they realized that once three malware programs(or OEM crap) are "installed", the user is no longer able to use any regular program at all and might get very angry which is never good for PR.
