Microsoft Says, Manufacturers are Free to Install Any Windows 7 Version on Netbooks

There you go folks, straight from the horses mouth. Microsoft confirmed that netbook manufacturers are free to use any of the Windows 7 kits that their netbooks can handle. Manufacturers are not after all tied-up to using only the scaled-down version of Windows 7. Likewise Microsoft also confirmed that the three application limit for Windows 7 has already been removed by Microsoft.

If you will recall, there was talks going on the past couple of weeks saying that Windows 7 netbooks would be the starter version only. And this doesn’t seem to please netbook users since the starter version of Windows 7 will only come in a 32-bit variant and will not have some nice features including the Aero Glass, Taskbasr, Previews or Aero Peek.

Likewise, desktop personalization, fast user switching, multi-monitor support, DVD playback, domain and XP mode are said to be absent in the Windows 7 started pack.

So, those of you who are waiting for Windows 7-powered netbooks will now have something to look forward to. At least we are now assured that these netbooks will be something different from the current crop of netbooks today.
