Windows 10 to come in 7 different versions


Microsoft has recently been talking about the idea of one Windows with universal apps that will run on every kind of device, from smartphones to desktop PCs will little to no changes, making it easier for developers to create a consistent experience.

But no Microsoft has announced there will be more versions than the average person can comprehend.

Does the world really need 7 flavours of Windows 10?

When Windows 10 officially launches in the summer there will be seven main flavors to choose from:

Windows 10 Home is the consumer-focused desktop edition…

Windows 10 Mobile is designed to deliver the best user experience on smaller, mobile, touch-centric devices like smartphones and small tablets…

Windows 10 Pro is a desktop edition for PCs, tablets and 2-in-1s…

Windows 10 Enterprise builds on Windows 10 Pro, adding advanced features designed to meet the demands of medium and large sized organizations…

Windows 10 Education builds on Windows 10 Enterprise, and is designed to meet the needs of schools – staff, administrators, teachers and students…

Windows 10 Mobile Enterprise is designed to deliver the best customer experience to business customers on smartphones and small tablets…

Windows 10 IoT Core for small footprint, low cost devices like gateways…

But it doesn’t stop there, as the enterprise versions will also come in more versions for ATMs, point of sale terminals, handheld terminals and industrial robots.

Microsoft wants to ensure that Windows is available on the broadest possible amount of device, but as far as consumers are concerned it’s a little baffling. Is it too much to ask to make an OS that can handle everything without so many versions?

  1. well this is really confusing 🙁
    could you give some indication on content or comparison with the Window7 versions,
    W7- Home, very limited for home
    W7- Home Premium, good contend for most Home usages
    W7- Enterprise,

    I mean , does the W10 Home, compare with W7 Home? if so , it is not suitable for me and most Home users; maybe for tablets and minimal starters computers
    What would be a good comparions for W7 Home Premium? will that be the W10 Pro, or the W10 enterprise.
    Next question than comes: the free upgrade of my W7 Home Premium will that give me a comparable strong OS or the downgraded Home only ??????
