Microsoft's Windows 7 Starter Edition

The Wall Street Journal Monday has described Microsoft’s netbook-tailored Windows 7 Starter Edition as a ‘gamble,’ saying that the company was trying to hook netbook customers to upgrade to the new version, sans Linux-based alternatives.

Apparently, Microsoft is trying hard for Windows to remain the netbook OS of preference, more so as it is involved in a tough competition with the recent netbook-favorite operating system - Linux.

The limiting factor of the new version is that it can only run three simultaneous applications, implying that users can only keep two applications open, along with an antivirus program; and its graphical interface is also less robust than the complete version of Windows 7.
