‘no Windows 7 restrictions for netbooks’ Microsoft

Microsoft announced that “OEMs and ODMs have the choice to install any version of Windows on a netbook,” a Microsoft UK spokesperson said. “[But] Starter is an entry version and doesn’t have many of the consumer or business features. The three application limit isn’t there anymore.” The Starter version only comes in a 32 bit variant – as does Windows 7 Home Basic, aimed at emerging markets – and is missing features such as Aero Glass, Taskbar Previews or Aero Peek. Other bits of the OS that have been switched off include desktop personalization, fast user switching, multi-monitor support, DVD playback, support for domains and XP Mode. Windows Media Center is not available and Starter machines can join a homegroup, but not set one up themselves.
