Bad new for those holding off a new netbook purchase because of Windows 7 (like me). You see, Microsoft wants to charge netbook makers around $45 to $55 for a copy of Windows 7 Starter Edition, which is almost twice as much as the company currently charges for Windows XP licenses.
According to DigiTimes,
Since most consumers think Windows XP is enough to handle their needs in a netbook, the Upgrade to Windows 7 Program will provide less incentive to attract consumers to purchase netbooks.
Dang. What do you guys think?
