Microsoft to launch Rs 1,000 starter XP edition to take on piracy Posted by iTech
MICROSOFT Corporation India is set to launch the Windows XP Starter Edition priced at Rs 1,000 that fits well into the Rs 10,000 price personal computers that have begun to proliferate in the country. The Starter Edition is attractively priced targeting countries such as India and Russia. The edition comes with high localisation and would be available in a local language interface such as Hindi, Telugu and Tamil. For the company, this move is aimed at partly curbing the rampant piracy of operating systems.
