Windows XP Starter Edition

Ok, really I only found one part of this story about Windows XP Starter Edition available in India interesting:

Aesthetics aside, Microsoft has modified the Starter Edition's functionalities to differentiate it from the higher-priced version of Windows XP. The ability to do home networking and to create multiple user accounts on a single PC has been removed, while display resolution is capped at a maximum of 800 by 600 pixels. More important, users can run only three programs or have three windows opened at once, a limitation that research company Gartner believes could frustrate users and drive them to buy bootleg copies of Windows XP instead.

Three windows??? Three?!?!?!
Currently I have 15 open. (and thats with Tabbed IMs)
