Windows 7 Versions Verified

Yesterday Microsoft announced, or least disclosed, how many versions of Windows 7 it plans to sell. Microsoft is planning two main lines, one for home and one for business. But within that are more options. In fact, there will be six versions, beginning with a low-end starter pack and topping out with the Windows 7 Enterprise Edition.

I've always thought fewer versions are better, but I don't sit in the Windows 7 steering committee. Is six too many? Send your advice to dbarney@redmondmag.com.
