WINDOWS 7 ON A NETBOOK WILL BE GREAT….

Meet Windows 7 on a Netbook.  What you thought would be a stallion turns out to be allegedly a three legged horse, with a maximum of three apps being able to be run on it at one time.

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)?

    No, you Lunix fanboy!
    Here is a complete list of applications that can be run simultaneously:
    1. Anti-Virus
    2. Anti-Spyware
    3. Firewall

    Ok well at least it will be semi secure. Granted, you wont be able to run anything else, but atleast theres less chance of becoming infected.
