According to a very recent blog post, complete with a screenshot of a Windows 7 installation screen (from Build 7025…the Beta was Build 7000), it looks like Microsoft will once again be releasing their operating system in multiple and superfluous flavors.
It would seem that they learned from corporate America that the apparent dichotomy between “Business” and “Enterprise” was all but clearly delineated. So they’ve revamped their flavors by removing one of the versions catering to businesses, and adding a version catering to the end-user:
The Starter edition! Complete with a MOUSE POINTER that you can use to CLICK [blocky] ICONS and MAYBE [sic] SURF THE WEB…on IE 6! You can experience luxurious 4-BIT INTERNAL SPEAKER SOUND that will be veritable EAR CANDY! You’ll enjoy a beach vacation of a visual experience with Windows 7 Starter’s new (maximal) graphics setting: DOZENS OF COLORS! And last but certainly not least is COMPATIBILITY WITH 3.5″ FLOPPIES!

…ok, back to dynamic programming. A more thorough update later, I promise.
