New SKUs and Details for Windows 7

Nathan Simon Nathan Simon Profile: Nathan Simon

Yikes… why cant we just have 2 versions of an OS already… here are the new SKUs

  • Windows 7 Starter (limited to three apps concurrently; no Aero UI tweaks)
  • Windows 7 Home Basic (only available for emerging markets; no Aero UI Tweaks)
  • Windows 7 Home Premium (adds Aero, Multi-Touch, Media Center, premium games, home networks)
  • Windows 7 Professional (All Premium features,RDP host, Mobility Center, Presentation mode, Domain support)
  • Windows 7 Enterprise (All Pro features,volume license only, boot from virtual drive, BitLocker,Adds Branch Cache,Adds Direct Access)
  • Windows 7 Ultimate (limited availability, includes everything)
Look at those limitations of each version… and the fact that Windows 7 Ultimate is going to be limited availability, what do they mean by that? Are they only going to sell it for a few months? If this sounds like a rant, it was meant to be 🙂 Want more? Go to Jason’s IT Rant Blog here.
