[Techpowerup.com] Windows 7 Starter Hardware Limitations Leaked, 3 App Limit Also Said to be Removed

As it was with Windows XP and Vista, Microsoft impose certain hardware limits to be able to install and use the most basic SKU of Windows, the Starter Edition. It seems Microsoft have lifted the limit on the specifications over that of XP and Vista Starter editions, with the only exceptions being a reduction in screen size from 12.1" to 10.2" and still only 1 GB RAM. Microsoft will also be imposing the same limitations on Windows 7 Home Basic For Small Notebook PCs but in China Only.
Paul Thurrot also revealed on Friday that Microsoft will be removing the "3 app limit" on Windows 7 Starter, which would have prevented users from running more than three applications at any time, thus severely crippling the functionality of the OS.
