Windows 7 Starter Edition
Microsoft has an interesting way of naming their Windows Operating System. Windows 7 will be offered in a "Starter Edition." I'm not sure how they picked that name, but one of the early circulating rumors stated that Windows 7 Starter Edition would limit you to run 3 applications simultaneously. Fortunately, this rumor has been dispelled (or you can say that Microsoft decided to change that aspect of Starter Edition).
If Windows 7 Starter Edition was meant for netbooks, why didn't Microsoft call it "Netbook Edition" or "UMPC Edition?" Are they giving up on the Ultra-Mobile PC?
