Since October 31, 2013, Windows 7 is no longer available in retail (except for the Professional edition preinstalled):
Windows 7 Starter
Windows 7 Starter is the edition of Windows 7 that contains the fewest features. It is only available in a 32-bit version and does not include the Windows Aero theme. The desktop wallpaper and visual styles (Windows 7 Basic) are not user-changeable. Microsoft originally intended to restrict users of this edition to running three simultaneous applications but this limitation was dropped.This edition was available pre-installed on computers, especially netbooks, through system integrators or computer manufacturers using OEM licenses.
Windows 7 Home Basic
Windows 7 Home Basic was available in "emerging markets", in 141 different countries. Some Windows Aero options are excluded along with several new features. Home Basic, along with other editions sold in emerging markets, include geographical activation restriction, which requires users to activate Windows within a certain region or country.
Windows 7 Home Premium
This edition contains features aimed at the home market segment, such as Windows Media Center, Windows Aero and multi-touch support.
Windows 7 Professional
This edition is targeted towards enthusiasts and small-business users. It includes all the features of Windows 7 Home Premium, and adds the ability to participate in a Windows Server domain. Additional features include support for up to 192 GB of Random-access memory (increased from 16 GB), operating as a Remote Desktop server, location aware printing, backup to a network location, Encrypting File System, Presentation Mode, Software Restriction Policies (but not the extra management features of AppLocker) and Windows XP Mode.
Windows 7 Enterprise
This edition targeted the enterprise segment of the market and was sold through volume licensing to companies which have a Software Assurance contract with Microsoft. Additional features include support for Multilingual User Interface(MUI) packages, BitLocker Drive Encryption, and UNIXapplication support. Not available through retail or OEMchannels, this edition is distributed through Microsoft Software Assurance (SA). As a result it includes several SA-only benefits, including a license allowing the operating of diskless nodes (diskless PCs) and activation via VLK.
Windows 7 Ultimate
Windows 7 Ultimate contains the same features as Windows 7 Enterprise, but unlike the Enterprise edition, it was available to home users on an individual license basis. Windows 7 Home Premium and Windows 7 Professional users are able to upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate for a fee using Windows Anytime Upgrade if they wish to do so. Unlike Windows Vista Ultimate, the Windows 7 Ultimate edition does not include the Windows Ultimate Extras feature or any exclusive features as Microsoft had stated.
All editions will receive Mainstream Support (new features and bug fixes) until January 2015 and Extended Support (security updates) until January 2020.
In case if you are using netbook, mostly netbooks comes with the starter editions of the OS like "Windows 8 Starter" or "Windows 7 Starter", these Starter editions does not have the option/capability to change the Wallpaper. So, if you are using netbook with Windows Starter edition, I am afraid you will not be able to change the wallpaper.
Windows 7 starter is the fartest you want to take this. I would recommend windows xp 32bit o/s since your netbook can't expand beyond 1gb. With windows 7 starter, on the long run, it's going to lag because windows 7 starter is 1gb min requirement already and you have a low running processor. Windows Xp is where I would stay if I want to be safe.
For windows 7 you need install a small application on the computer... Only with the hekp of that you can change the wallpaper for win 7 starter... Please use the following link.. This will be helpfull to change the background..
All sources of line-in provide a signal with at least 250mv of amplitude. The average pc microphone (condenser type) generates at most 2mV and needs to be powered by the entry in ord.er to work. So it is physically impossible to make a mic work on a line-in connection unless the connector can be configured act like a mike entry - almost all modern ones can.
