    Starter Edition will allow only three applications (and/or three windows) to run simultaneously, will provide Internet connectivity but not incoming network communications, and will not provide for logon passwords or Fast User Switching (FUS).

    You guys can't honestly intend to ship this?!

    Its been around the past 2 years nearly under the guise "Windows XP Starter Edition".

    Windows Vista SE, like XP, will only be available in localised form to OEMs located in South, East, and South East Asia (where piracy is rife)

    Just found out in the Vista UI video that most users have a max of 3 or 4 windows open anyway.  That limit seems reasonable for these emerging markets.

    Visual Studio 2003 - W3b.Insecticide.Lib
    Microsoft Access - SQL Server Project
    SQL Server Enterprise Manager
    Windows Explorer
    Windows Messenger Contact List
    1x Windows Messenger Conversation
    Steam Server List
    WinAMP

    Me too.  Generally have about 12 items on the taskbar with several of them grouped.

    Not sure exactly how the stats the video sites were put together, but your average joe doesn't do as much as we do with our systems.

    Were you hoping to get away with purchasing the Starter Edition?  Tongue Out
