Specs: N/A, 4gb RAM
Mike Nash, corporate vice president of Microsoft’s Windows product management group said,

“OEMs that are using Windows XP on netbooks will have the ability to install Windows XP for one year — 12 months — after Windows 7 general availability,”

Microsoft just can't bare to part ways with XP that's what it's really all about. :)

They should just continue to sell XP until it's no longer needed. I mean, they are still making money off of it from netbook companies. So why not continue to sell it and keep it as Microsofts budget line OS.

eh this is a replay of Mike Nash shouting Long Live XP! back in 2007. Curious, do you already have a netbook> If not are you planning on getting one just because it's running on XP?

Yeah I do have a netbook and I love it, especially when taking it on long trips where those low specs really play a big factor in battery life.

Most of the netbooks that I first looked at had lousy battery life - only eventually chose the MSI Wind when the bigger capacity batteries appeared. Anyway, I'm also very happy with my netbook - suits my needs when I'm away from the desk. Have to admit though that I've now got it dual-booted with the latest Ubuntu so not too worried what happens to XP......
