Microsoft to remove “3 app limit” on Windows 7 Starter

Quote:
One of the biggest criticisms facing Windows 7 Starter Edition is the “three app limit”. By only allowing three applications to be open at any one time, many have referred to this base edition of Windows 7 as the ‘crippled’ version.

This limit was creating a lot of bad press for Microsoft, so it will be hardly surprising if this turns out to be true. Now, let’s just hope they’ll overturn the ridiculous inability to change the desktop wallpaper.

That's a relief

I'd still prefer Aero but I could do without this for the right price. I did find the 3 app limit restrictive when I tried out starter edition.

That restriction just didnt make sense. Considering the starter version is meant for poor 3rd world countries theyd want to run more than 3 programs just as much as we do.
