We've already heard that HP will likely be offering more than just the stripped-down Starter version of Windows 7 on its future laptops, and it now looks like Samsung could be set to do the same. According to TechRadar, Samsung's Head of Worldwide Sales and Marketing for the computing division, Kyu Uhm, says that the company would like to include higher-end versions of Windows 7 on its future netbooks, but that depends on how much it has to pay Microsoft in royalties. In related news, Samsung's European Product Manager Patrick Pavel also said that the launch of Windows 7 would likely spell the end of Linux as an option for its netbooks, although he says Samsung would still consider a Linux netbook if users demanded it, adding that Linux netbooks "made a certain community very happy."
