Microsoft says no to netbooks with hybrid storage

Posted on Thursday, June 04 2009 @ 22:09:20 CEST by


Bit Tech learned Microsoft isn't allowing netbook makers to install Windows XP on a netbook with both a solid state disk and hard drive.
It seems Redmond gets in quite a fluff with regards to the new market of mini-portables and this arbitrary licensing limitation is in addition to the "maximum of 1GB of memory" already enforced, if companies want to buy Windows XP Home to stick on their cheap 10"ers.

Unfortunately for MSI, it's Wind U115 netbook was the only one affected as it was already in the market before Redmond made the declaration, and MSI has until the end of June to remove the ultra-long battery life products from the shelves.
