Windows 7 SKUs

Microsoft will offer 6 different SKUs for it’s upcoming Windows 7 operating system.

Here’s full list ordered based on number of features:

Windows 7 Starter Edition
Windows 7 Home Basic
Windows 7 Home Premium
Windows 7 Professional
Windows 7 Enterprise
Windows 7 Ultimate

The novelty is that every edition will have every feature it’s cheaper brother/sister has so there won’t be a paradox situations where more expensive SKU (Business vs. Home Premium) doesn’t have features cheaper one has (i.e. Media Center).

Starter Edition will only be available to OEMs, Home Basic in emerging markets and Enterprise through Software Assurance.

Pricing is unknown at this moment.
