BBC: “Microsoft’s plan to impress new users with a cut-down version of Windows has come in for strong criticism. The software giant has created Windows XP Starter Edition for countries where the PC-owning population is still low. But analysts from consultancy Gartner said the cut-down version would be “frustrating” to use and warned firms and consumers to stay away from it. “

The big restriction to XP Starter Edition is that users can only have 3 applications running concurrently. What’s the rational thinking behind this?
