Windows XP Starter Edition Pilot Expands to Russia

Windows XP Starter Edition Pilot Expands to Russia "Russia is the fourth nation to participate in the Windows XP Starter Edition pilot program, which is designed for first-time desktop PC users in developing technology markets. The operating system will be available in Russia in early 2005. A fifth emerging technology market will be announced in the coming weeks."

Back in the good old days, when Lotus and Microsoft were relentlessly competing in the PC software market and suites were growing in popularity, I remember reading a Bill Gates quote directed to Jim Manzi: "It's not a good idea to get into price competition with someone who has more money than you do."
