"Yes, it's true that the new Mini 10 will also come
with XP Home and Windows 7 Starter Edition. But, XP Home is showing
its age and while I actually like some of Windows 7's features, I
don't know anyone who has a kind word to say for Windows 7 Starter.
"Microsoft has restricted Windows 7 Starter to make sure it's no
competition for the more full-featured versions of Windows 7. For
example, "It's got to have a super-small screen, which means it
probably has a super-small keyboard, and it has to have a certain
processor and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah." That ringing
endorsement for Windows 7 Starter Edition was made by some guy
named Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft."
