Microsoft thinks their users are fools.

I came to know that windows 7(aka: vista 7) will only allow users to run three applications at a time.This is real shame.

“This edition is intended for poor and developing nations” (omg)

Here is the press release:

We know emerging markets have unique needs and we will offer Windows 7 Home Basic, only in emerging markets, for customers looking for an entry-point Windows experience on a full-size value PC.

We’ll also continue to offer Windows Starter edition, which will only be offered pre-installed by an OEM. Windows Starter edition will now be available worldwide. This edition is available only in the OEM channel on new PCs limited to specific types of hardware.

Do yourself a favour: Use free and fully functional operating systems like fedora or ubuntu, don’t use this cripple ware please.

    could this be like the ulimit issue on linux distros?There is a limit (default 1024 on ulimit) which is linked to the number of files that you can be opened by a process.
