With all the rumors floating around about the Windows 7 Starter Edition, Microsoft thought it was time to enlighten everyone on some of the official limitations of the upcomming OS.

 

Microsoft Expands On Windows 7 Starter Ed.

 


What would have proven to have been a very limiting feature of Wiindows 7 Starter Edition has been confirmed as removed. There will be no three application limit for running applications in the Starter Edition.

 

Windows 7 Starter Edition will still have a ton of limitations or lack of features however. Some of these include the lack of Aero Glass, no multi-monitor support, and no DVD playback support. Many of the features that are lacking with the Starter Edition will more than likely have no effect on nebook users however, as they often either lack the power to run them or generally aren't used for such tasks to begin with.
