Windows 7 and Netbooks

Nathan Simon Nathan Simon Profile: Nathan Simon

Seems that Microsoft wants to gear “Windows 7 Starter Edition” for the netbook.

Here is an inserpt from a Engaget

Microsoft also says that’s it’s going out of its way to make Windows 7 as accommodating for netbook manufacturers as possible, adding that it has cleaned up the system tray and “made some other concessions for the OEMs to help with branding.”

They want to replace all the Linux based netbooks with “Windows 7 Starter Edition”, they also said that we should be seeing some 200$ netbooks by the holidays! I say bring it on.
