Microsoft says touch is ok on ULCPCs.. netbooks


To celebrate my touch screen Eee PC 900, MS is now selling cheap XP licences to touch screen devices too...

"XP Home ( $30 ULCPC version ) is ok on devices up to 14.1" and those sporting touch screens. This is a change from their previous policy of not allowing touch screens, and limiting the screens to 10.2 inches. They also increased the diskspace requirement from 80 gb to 160 gb."

Thanks you!

Thanks GottaBeMobile!

There's something I don't understand yet here. When you buy a netbook that has XP on it, are you also getting a CD with the complete edition of the installed XP OS on it?

Oh ... and I bet now we're now even closer to Asus or maybe even MSI releasing a *slate* ULCPC! Won't that be exciting!

wow you have completely changed the netbook game. Excellent job and props to you for making the installation of your touchscreen so public. Now i'm going to wait for a company to do it for me instead of void my warranty :D!
