Default Windows 7 Version Revealed


- Windows 7 Starter
- Windows 7 Home Basic
- Windows 7 Home Premium
- Windows 7 Business
- Windows 7 Ultimate

The beta currently available is Ultimate; no ideas yet what features will be cut if we go down the product line.

they're just trying to have a hand in all market segments with the same product; same as car manufacturers offer the same model with different engines

a) the US car companies are in trouble because they got too many models

b) The confusion and the increase in SKUs cost money, stall sales, cause negative press and lawsuits. They are not making a OS more powerfull or more economical, they just gimp it to differentiate in price but ignoring the costs of that strategy.

but at the same time people who have low budget can use Windows 7 starter, and those with more money can get the fancier features; both can claim their PC is driven by Windows 7

marketing

You are again ignoring the cost and the fact that people with a low budget pirate the higher version because they don't want the cheap one.

Hm, so those names/categories are just preliminary and have not been finalized... I guess I will wait and see. All they need is Starter, Home, Pro, and because they are greedy, Ultimate. Ignoring "N" versions, "K" versions, and "KN" versions which are still mandated by the EU and Korean Fair Trade Comission.

Since that is your example, how exactly would you propose they solve that?

these are the kits they'll sell to OEM, no pirating, little laptops will get Vista Starter, entry level desktops, Home Basic or Premium, Workstations Business, Gaming setups Ultimate.

it's not interesting for OEM to buy $300 Ultimate if all they need for certain models are Starter or Home.
