The blogosphere is abuzz with a news report that Microsoft has announced a version of Windows 7 specifically designed for netbooks. That news report, however, is flat-out wrong. Microsoft has made no such announcement, and might not even be working on a netbook-specific version of the operating system.
Because an unmodified version of Windows 7 can run on netbooks, it's not necessarily true that there needs to be a netbook version. So for now, the next time you hear someone say that Microsoft has "confirmed" that it's working on a netbook version of Windows 7, you can safely tell them that it simply isn't true.
