Microsoft Set to Unveil 7 Versions of Windows Vista

Microsoft is all set to unveil as many as seven editions of their next PC operating system; Windows Vista. These editions have been particularly construed to cater to home and business requirements with various levels of functionality depending on the specific version.

Out of the seven new product editions, four of these – Windows Vista Ultimate Edition, Windows Vista Home Premium Edition, Windows Vista Home Basic Edition and Windows Vista Starter Edition – have been designed for the home segment. The remaining three products – Windows Vista Enterprise Edition, Windows Vista Professional Edition and Windows Vista Small Business Edition – will be targeting the business segment.

A key calling card of the line up of seven new editions is that it is aiming to help consumers in the given categories at different points of their application usage expertise. For instance, the Windows Vista Starter Edition is meant for new users who will prefer to buy a low end PC and has only 3 applications to offer. But other versions in the home category will have advanced features. Its Windows Vista Professional Edition meant for the business market will be laden with Tablet PC functionality, Encrypted File System (EFS), IIS Web server, Remote Desktop, etc.

An additional feature is that they have been designed in a way that makes them compatible with non-Microsoft networking protocols as well like with SNMP and Netware. The Windows Vista Pro, more or less, promises to provide the same functionalities as what we have now in Windows XP Pro. The most advanced new vista edition in the business category would be the Windows Vista Enterprise Edition, this will have unique features such as Secure Startup/full volume encryption security technologies, multi-language user interface (MUI) and Virtual PC.
