"History would tell us that generally as you ship a Windows release into the market...the bump is very modest," Microsoft senior vice president Bill Veghte said in a "fireside chat" at the UBS Global Technology and Services Conference. "You will see a little bit, but it is modest."

Veghte announced last week that Microsoft plans to ship Windows 7 on Oct. 22. The company will also have a program in the coming weeks through which those who buy a new PC with Windows Vista will get a free or low-cost upgrade to Windows 7. A leaked memo from Best Buy suggests that the program will kick off at the end of this month.

Computex is Asia's premier tech tradeshow and is regarded as the second largest in the world, behind CeBIT Germany.

Nevertheless, 100,000 attendees are browsing 4600 booths in the mammoth Taipei World Trade Center and Nangang Exhibition Hall (pictured).

Developments surrounding Windows 7, laptop processors, and Google Android dominate news on the first day of the conference, which runs from June 2 to June 6. Read on for the latest.  [Comments....]

 Starter edition is aimed at netbooks

Shane McGlaun (Blog) - June 1, 2009 9:54 AM

Microsoft has announced that Windows 7 Starter edition will have features not previously found on starter editions of Windows XP and Windows Vista. According to Microsoft, previous starter versions of Windows only allowed users to run three programs simultaneously. The three program limit didn’t count background applications, wireless, Bluetooth, and system tools.

Microsoft points out that the expanded capabilities of Windows 7 starter edition will make the starter version attractive to netbook users, but the starter version isn’t the only version that will operate on netbooks. [DailyTech...]    [Comments...]
