Microsoftâs Windows 7 May Not Cure Netbook Headache

,----[ Quote ]
| This time, as Microsoft readies Windows 7, the company is planning a basic
| version, as well as more expensive editions that are also targeted at
| netbooks. Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer said last week that he will make sure
| consumers can âtrade up.â
| âPessimisticâ
| Many netbook buyers wonât go for it, because they want the cheapest option
| possible, said John DiFucci, the JPMorgan Chase & Co. analyst who asked the
| question that prompted Ballmerâs comment. That means investors shouldnât
| expect Microsoft to make much more money on netbook software, the New
| York-based analyst said in a note to clients. Microsoft hasnât released
| specific prices for the different versions of Windows 7.
| âI donât know that thereâs much room to charge more than whatâs been charged
| currently,â said Michael Cherry, an analyst at Directions on Microsoft in
| Kirkland, Washington. âIâm pessimistic about this.â
