Microsoft Confirms Windows 7 for Netbooks
During the Windows Hardware Engineering Conference the world’s largest software designer Microsoft confirmed a special version of Windows 7 operating system (OS) designed for ultra low-cost personal computers (ULCPCs) with limited performance and capabilities.
Microsoft Windows 7 for netbooks (and nettops) will be able to run on a system equipped with 1GB of random access memory (RAM) and 16GB solid-state drive (SSD), reports Cnet News.com web-site. Representatives for Microsoft also said that more advanced Windows 7-based netbooks will be equipped with up to 160GB hard disk drives and even dual-core Intel Atom microprocessors.
It is unknown whether Windows 7 will actually help netbooks to become more advanced and comfortable to use compared to existing solutions. Netbooks are usually criticized for generally low system performance as well as small screens, something that will not be resolved by a new OS.
