A Different Windows XP?

leave a comment

It is official: a reduced price Windows XP becomes available in developing countries!

My personal belief is that the special Windows XP edition is going to do more harm to Microsoft than good. Now they have two different products to develop, support and maintain. You can bet that the users of reduced XP would ask for more features. And MSFT is going to get different feature requests from the two groups …

Eventually I think MSFT would have to reduce the price of the OS across the board and have a unified product instead. Lost revenue can come from higher end value added services or products.
