I have been doing looking into these different versions, which obviously isnt doing what MS said they would do and limit the number of versions, although it looks like Home Basic and Home Premium are all people will really need, and home premium will probably be the standard,
But my real wonder lies with this Windows 7 Starter Edition, the main fault is that it only allows 3 simultaneous applications to run, now im not sure how microsoft will decide to limit them:
will it be just items that have a window on the taskbar?
If so I can see about a million tweaks to move your applications to the system tray to get more running, this doesent seem like a viable way to limit.
or maybe will MS just limit the number of non os processes to 3?
this is my worry, because anyone who encouters any type of malware could easily hit 3 applications just at that, and be blocked out of their own machine, preventing them from even running tools to fix it
or maybe theres a better way that im not seeing?
anyone have any real insight or ideas on how this is being done?
