As its very cheap it basically provides alternative OS systems to the users from the copied ones which are unlicesend and illegal. It is not available in already grown commercial markets like Europe,USA, Canada, Israel, Australia and New Zeland.This version has very significant limiltations in hardware and software aspects. A user for instance cant launch more then three applications in with a user interface at once. The biggest problem is the hardware limitaions like it supports RAM of 1GB not more then that but this version can also run only 380 MB of RAM. In AMD machines it only supports Athlon XP, Duron, Sempron and Geode processors not any higher. When using an Intel's machine it supports Celeron, CeleronD, Celeron M, Pentium III processors and certain models of Pentium 4 with hard disk limit of 250 GB. Windows Vista Starter's hardware requirements are modest, to say the least. If Vista is a resource hog, the Starter edition is the only exception.


This version of Windows vista is designed to run on the lower configuration and some processors are listed above. This edition of vista can perfectly run on 512 MB of Random Access Memory. Windows Vista needed 15 GB of hard disk space and direct X9 with a 32 Mb of video graphics memory.
