Windows 7: Windows 7 Starter Edition - Is It Really That Bad?

Hi all
3 Apps is CRAP

I've got W7 running on a Netbook -- works fine

3 EXCEL spreadsheets
1 Power point app
Email
3 Browser sessions
1 Spider Solitaire ( I'm hooked on this simple game - great when you are on a train etc)
Winamp music playing
Photoshop CS4 (this one is a little challenging on a netbook I'll agree but it DOES work)

MS CEO's must have just come out of those Amsterdam Coffee shops after a session on that "funny smelling tobacco" to come up with this idea.

Cheers
jimbo

People need laptop,but buy netbook because of size and price difference,and then want to use it as laptop when they found that this days,netbook has not so bad perfomances at all.
