Microsoft objects netbooks with 2GB memory

Posted on Thursday, October 16 2008 @ 05:12:10 CEST by

FUD Zilla claims Microsoft isn't allowing netbook makers to sell Windows XP netbooks with 2GB of memory:
If you want to sell your notebook with Linux then Microsoft won't object, but if you want to sell it with XP, some limitations are imposed.

Microsoft has a special, ultra cheap version of Windows XP for OEMs that is only for Netbooks and this licence supports up to 1.5GB memory. It can support more memory, but Microsoft simply won't cover a license and will ask for more money per XP license if you decide to use 2GB or more.
