Windows 7 starter version doesn’t support extended displays

January 12, 2011 1 comment

Shame on Microsoft, really, I have to say this once more, once I found out I couldn’t use dual displays in extended mode (that is, not cloned mode) on my Acer AOD 255 (windows 7 starter installed) which comes with an external VGA connector. Note that I also dual boot ubuntu 10.10 on this little netbook and dual display works flawlessly (in either clone or extend mode). Went online to do a bit of search and only to find out the starter version of windows 7 really sucks on multiple display support.
