Microsoft: Windows 7 will run on SSD netbooks - [briefly]
06:30 AM EST - Nov,09 2008 - post a comment

Netbooks equipped with solid-state drives (SSD) sporting as little as 16GB of storage capacity will be able to comfortably run Windows 7, Microsoft said on Thursday. The operating system and auxiliary files generated by Windows 7 -- including restore files, log points, hibernation files, and temp files -- will require 8GB, leaving 8GB for applications and user data, Microsoft senior lead program manager Leon Braginski said during a presentation at its Windows Hardware Engineering Conference (WinHEC).  Gartner expects the wholesale prices of SSDs to be halved by 2010, when Windows 7 is expected to be released.
