Microsoft annouces Windows 7 Editions

Today, Microsoft announced the official Windows 7 Editions. I have to say I wish Microsoft would have just done Windows 7 Home, Pro and Ultimate.


Windows 7 Starter - Only available to OEMs to pre-install on new PCs Worldwide.

Windows 7 Home Basic - Only available to emerging retail markets.

Windows 7 Home Premium
- Word Wide, Retail

Windows 7 Professional - Word Wide, Retail

Windows 7 Enterprise -Volume-license business customers only

Windows 7 Ultimate - World Wide, Limited Retail
So for retail at least there is just Windows 7 Home, Pro and Ultimate. Microsoft has yet to announce Pricing, Volume Licensing, and N Edition(s) of Windows 7, that ships without Windows Media Player to the European market.
