Please also remember these are TRIALS getting one and bypassing the "trial" by reinstalling every 90days is quite uncool.

I've heard some people say windows 7 starter is better then 7 original. Has anyone tested this theory yet ? And If so what does that mean for us people running on hardware from 2003. Can we buy and install it or would we be wasting money on something to advanced.

What is "7 original"?

Try looking here to get an idea of "which features" (starter is real basic). You do know that there's a program that you can download that will tell you whether Win7 will "accept" the hardware you plan to install on? System Requirements

Better than 7PRO, no, capable of things beyond what is possible without modding? Yes.

Win7 Starter is the most restricted edition and you can't really work with it. Get the Home Premium and you're fine for home usage.

95% of the stuff on your list isn't "free", they're just trial versions. They have lots of free software though: Windows Live suite, Security Essentials, Visual C# Express, VB Express, Visual C++ Express, SQL Server Express (and SQL Server Compact too, and lots of extras), IIS 7.5 Express, Robotics Developer Studio Express, TONS of developer stuff their MVC stack/NuGet/SandCastle/lots of SDKs/all .NET compilers/etc, PowerShell, Hyper-V and Virtual PC, XNA studio, WM and Expression Encoders, XP PowerToys, the SysInternals suite, the Zune player (it's actually not bad), SteadyState, the Windows 7 USB/DVD download tool, Virtual Earth, MSRT and Defender, the baseline security analyzer, ActiveSync, Skype, Office viewers, Mathematics, Small Basic (for kids to learn programming), WebMatrix (and the Platform Installer too), Sharepoint Designer, etc.

And we're not talking about things like Media Player and IE version updates, DirectX, .NET frameworks, Service Packs, theme packs (even though it's not software), etc. Including FAR more online content & services than anyone else provides: hotmail, bing, msdn, channel9, skydrive, CodePlex, MSN, technet, etc.But that's all free as well.

windows 7 starter is better then 7 original

Most likely, you mean starter vs home premium. The starter version only has extra limitations and restrictions like not having a x64 version, 2GB of RAM max, no aero glass, no changing wallpaper or themes, etc.

Comparison here.
