Intel CEO Paul Otellini:
“About Netbooks he said: “We lit a fuse. It’s the only bright spot in the PC industry at this point in time.” But he added: “Atom is still less than half the performance of our entry-level Celeron product. It wasn’t designed to be a notebook replacement part.” He added the Microsoft will limit the starter edition of Windows 7–that will be used for future Netbooks–to three applications running at once. “You’ll be underwhelmed,” he said, relative to mainstream notebooks.”
Interesting – good spot 🙂
wtf only three applications running at once, that sucks…
hmm yeah – what’s that about? I think I’d rather be able to make that decision myself. However I am sure people will find a way…
It’s all to do with cost, the starter version of Win 7 will be cheaper for manufacturers to buy. Those of us running the Win 7 Beta know the Ultimate version works without problems, so the three apps limit is an artificial limit.
