Windows 7 News: specs for netbooks, Starter edition limitation removed and ship date

Microsoft is making the Windows 7 picture a bit more clear.  Two rather significant bits of news about the operating system became known today:  the max specs for ‘netbooks’ and the three app limit on the Starter edition is being removed. 

In order to qualify for, presumably, the lower priced Starter and Home Basic editions of Windows 7, the machine:

  • have more than 1gb of RAM
  • screen cannot be larger than 10.2”
  • hard disk of 250gb or smaller (64gb for SDD’s)
  • single core processors, 2GHz or slower

Also, Paul Thurrot says that the release date for the operating system is October 15.  I hope he is correct.
