Samsung planning netbook with full Windows 7

Posted on Saturday, March 28 2009 @ 04:20:34 CET by

Samsung unveiled its planning to release netbooks with the full version of Windows 7, and not the crippled Starter Edition that can only run three applications simultaneously. The main issue is the cost:
When asked whether Samsung was actively developing Windows 7 netbooks, Uhm was certain. "Of course, of course." And what of better versions of Windows?

"Currently Microsoft provides Windows XP for netbooks. For Windows 7 they would like to give us Windows 7 Starter Edition for netbooks. That's the current plan.

"[Different versions are a] matter of how much we need to pay to Microsoft. It is an open issue. So we can ship other Windows 7 versions, but it is a matter of royalties."

When we pressed further, Uhm became cagey. "We need to ask Microsoft first."
