Windows Vista to come in seven (or more) versions

Ryan Block, @ryan
Windows Vista

Despite what we've heard about Media Center and Tablet PC edition features being squarely integrated into the product, Microsoft still hasn't lost its touch for the flexious in their forthcoming version of Windows. That's right, we're going from Home, MC, Tablet, Pro, and Pro 64 (and to a lesser extent, Starter)—all clearly delineated—to Windows Vista Starter Edition, Vista Home Basic Edition, Vista Home Premium Edition, Vista Ultimate Edition,  Vista Small Business Edition, Vista Professional Edition, and Vista Enterprise Edition. We won't tell you all the goodies each version's supposed to have, but the next time we see him we will definitely tell Bill that staggered pricepoints and confusing upgrade feature sets are no way to ensure people buy (or like) your OS.
