Windows Starter Edition 2007

Filed under: Microsoft,People — by anshuljain @ 8:05 pm

I’ve come across Windows Starter 2007. However, there are Software and Hardware Restrictions that you should pay attention to before trying to reach for a torrent. It is aimed at beginner computer users in emerging markets who can only afford a low cost PC. As with the XP version, Windows Starter 2007 is a subset of Vista Home Basic, and will ship in a 32-bit version only (no 64-bit x64 version). Starter 2007 will allow only three applications (and/or three windows) to run simultaneously, will provide Internet connectivity but not incoming network communications, and will not provide for logon passwords or Fast User Switching (FUS). Starter 2007 is analogous to XP Starter Edition. This version will only be sold in emerging markets. Screenshots are available almost everywhere.
Windows Starter 2007 is lacking a number of unique features found in most of the other Vista product editions. There is no Aero user interface, for example, and no support for Castle-based networking. Other missing features include DVD Authoring, gaming common controller support, and image editing with enhanced touchup.

Software Requirements:

  • Windows Starter 2007 Beta has a restriction of opening only three applications at a time.
  • No domain access and no inbound connection.
  • You cannot share your printer, files, folders or internet however you can have access to other computer’s resources, i.e, you can access their resources however vice versa is not true. Its only a one way communictaion.
  • Hardware Requirements:

  • CPU – Intel Celeron; Pentium (except IV and Higher); AMD (except Athlon, Opteron)
  • Memory – 256 (Minimum) 512 (Recommended/Maximum)
  • 10 GB of available hard disk space
  • DVD drive
  • Super VGA resolution video adapter and monitor.
  • Microsoft Mouse or compatible pointing device.
