AS LONG AS YOU DONT PLAN ON RUNNING MORE THAN THREE APPLICATIONS AT THE SAME TIME.
This is a new piece of news to me, so I appologize if some have already read this.
There are many bloggers, both honest (and not so) who are looking forward to the release of Windows 7 on the netbook as a turning point for the Windows product. It is suggested by many that Windows 7 will replace XP as the Microsoft platform of choice on the latest must have gadget, the netbook.
IMO just how Vista looks pretty until you start scratching under the surface, I thought it would be simply a matter of time before the Window 7 on the netbook reality was revealed to the public and it looks like it has.
Over on the Wall Street Journal, it is reporting that the version of Windows 7 that will ship with Netbooks may only run up to three applications at once with the WSJ commenting “Of course, this begs the question: why is Microsoft bothering to sell a hobbled version of Windows 7 in the first place?”
You can read the Journals article in its entirity HERE.
The news is also covered at the VarGuy HERE.
So now, the only question that remains is: If Windows 7 on the netbook can only run a max of 3 applications at one time, does Windows 7 itself count as one? Is the reality that you can only run two at the same (excluding the OS)?
