8 is Enough

Well it began with XP having the two editions of XP Home and XP Pro, now continuing with the time honored tradition of bloating Windows Vista will be available in 8 editions.

Windows Starter
Windows Vista Home Basic
Windows Vista Home Basic N
Windows Vista Home Premium
Windows Vista Business
Windows Vista Business N
Windows Vista Enterprise
Windows Vista Ultimate

Note that the “N” versions are identical to their non “N” counterparts except tht they do not include Windows Media Player. This edition is mandated by European law, to allow more competitiveness among media applications available for Windows.

This new litter of OS apps will surely fit Microsoft’s Price Point much better than their users’ needs. This is going to be a nightmare.
