Microsoft has announced that it is removing the three-application limit on Windows 7 Starter edition.

"We believe these changes will make Windows 7 Starter an even more attractive option for customers who want a small notebook PC for very basic tasks, like browsing the web, checking email and personal productivity," wrote Brandon LeBlanc on the Windows Team Blog last week.

Starter Editions on previous versions of Windows were originally designed by Microsoft for emerging economies, but the Windows 7 version will also be available in the UK. It's most likely to be used on netbooks.

However, Windows 7 Starter will still lack a number of features from the mainstream, and more expensive, Windows 7 editions. It won't support DVD playback, Media Center features and the Aero Glass interface, for instance.

Windows 7 is expected to become available this autumn.
