    Wow, that's about 2 versions too many. We could do without the starter and home basic, you know those aren't really Windows 7 (Hell, they're barely even Windows.)

    I think most people will want to have Remote Desktop without necessarily paying for the Professional version -- I'd give up WMC (Media Centre) at a shot and take RDP instead.

    I'm sure someone will find a "Hack" to get RDP to work. -- Depends again on Price differential. If it really is "Like XP Home and XP PRO" then I don't see a huge market for the business / ultimate versions -- after all in a typical office most people actually have quite modest computing requirements - (excluding Media Pros, Engineering designers etc).

    Still we are still certainly over 9 months away from a Launch so the info in the OP is by no means "Gospel".
    Interesting to see what the pricing will bring out.

    Cheers

    So despite the negative feedback regarding all of the SKU's, Microsoft in it's infinite Mojave wisdom has decided to practically clone the Vista SKU's and dump them into Windows 7. IMO... They should have 1 SKU... Windows 7.



    Windows Vista:
    Starter 2007
    Home Basic
    Home Premium
    Business
    Enterprise
    Ultimate

    Windows 7:
    Starter
    Home Basic
    Home Premium
    Professional
    Enterprise
    Ultimate

    Well, Home Premium and above will come in 64-Bit, and starter and Basic will be 32-Bit only. At least, that's how they did it with Vista.

    So that's even more versions..... that's cool with me as everybody wants something different.

    I'm downloading the 64 bit version of W7 right now... as I want to give it a spin with my sound card and Adobe Audition 3 program.

    Who knows, maybe I will go for the 64 bit version.....

    I've a got a few months to play with it, we'll see.

    :)

    Ultimate woot woot
     
  17. I would be satisfied with Home Premium - except - I need/want Remote Desktop. Virtual Machine and Bitlocker.
    Oh, So I guess I'll need Ultimate then? So why are they not planning to sell it to me then? Did I miss the logic to that?
