Because it is sold at the same price as the version with Windows Media Player included, Dell, Hewlett-Packard, Lenovo and Fujitsu Siemens have chosen not to stock the product.
In addition, the Starter Edition also has some unique limitations to prevent it from displacing more expensive versions of Windows XP.The initial release was available solely in conjunction with computers that included media center capabilities, and could not be purchased separately.The first major update was released in 2004 and distributed by Tier 1 OEMs who had previously sold Windows XP Media Center Edition PC, and then updated again in 2005, which was the first edition available for System Builders.This version does not include the company's Windows Media Player but instead encourages users to pick and download their own media player.Microsoft wanted to call this version Reduced Media Edition, but EU regulators objected and suggested the Edition N name, with the N signifying "not with Media Player" for both Home and Professional editions of Windows XP.Windows XP Starter Edition is a lower-cost version of Windows XP available in Thailand, Vietnam, Turkey, Indonesia, India, Philippines, Colombia, Brazil, Argentina, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Mexico, Ecuador, Uruguay, Malaysia, and Venezuela.
It is similar to Windows XP Home, but is limited to low-end hardware, can only run 3 programs at a time, and has some other features either removed or disabled by default.
Only three applications can be run at once on the Starter Edition, and each application may open a maximum of three windows.
The maximum screen resolution is 1024×768, and there is no support for workgroup networking or domains.
In addition, the Starter Edition is licensed only for low-end processors like Intel's Celeron or AMD's Duron and Sempron.
There is also a 512 MB limit on main memory and a 120 GB disk size limit.
Microsoft has not made it clear, however, if this is for total disk space, per partition, or per disk.
