What was the /official/ reason for this bizarre decision?
I can understand them planning to enforce a "three app limit" on Vista
7, because that's probably all it can manage to cope with on a netbook,
but insisting on low /hardware/ specs just makes no sense at all.
My only conclusion is they're attempting to game the market into
rejecting netbooks in favour of more "Windows-capable" machines.
Fortunately their little dictum is irrelevant to ARM systems, as Windows
can't run on them anyway, as Fuddie likes to keep reminding us for some
