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.

Microsoft has defended its decision to produce a cheap version of XP, saying it was suitable for first time users.

"Windows XP Starter Edition reflects a simplification to the operating system corresponding to the lowered price and increased value," said Paul Randle, Windows Client product manager.
