Windows Vista Starter Edition for developing countries

Posted on Sunday, January 28 2007 @ 15:14:34 CET by

Just like for Windows XP, Microsoft has prepared a stripped-down Starter Edition of Windows Vista for developing countries:
It's a similar concept to the Starter Edition of Windows XP that Microsoft launched in June 2003: a version of the operating system that can run on lower-end processors, in location-specific languages, with extra help tutorials bundled for customers who may be using PCs for the first time. The Vista Starter Edition will be launched alongside the main Vista product on January 30.

"Microsoft was founded on the idea of a computer on every desktop in every home," explained Mike Wickstand, director of product marketing for Microsoft's Product Expansion Group, adding that the Redmond, Wash.-based company has been working with "governments in emerging markets around the world to better understand what their needs were in improving access to technology for their citizens, and particularly for those citizens in the middle and lower income brackets within those countries."
