    First, Windows 8 is the official product name for the next x86/64 editions of Windows.

    Microsoft has announced that there will only be 3 editions of Windows 8 in x86 & x64 versions.

    Windows 8, Windows 8 Pro and Windows RT.

    The first 2 are for desktop and tablet users.
    Windows RT edition will only be available pre-installed on PCs and tablets powered by ARM processors.
    Windows RT will include touch-optimized desktop versions of the new Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote. For new apps, the focus for Windows RT is development on the new Windows runtime, or WinRT, which we unveiled in September and forms the foundation of a new generation of cloud-enabled, touch-enabled, web-connected apps of all kinds.

    So, what exactly do you get with Windows 8 & Windows 8 Pro?
