Windows 7 Home Premium, Windows 7 Professional Announced

Mike Ybarra discusses how Windows 7 (download) editions are being designed to make buying simple, while serving the needs of more than 1 billion customers worldwide. The company has announced its plans for Windows 7 SKU (Stock Keeping Unit) strategy, explaining that Microsoft expects that a majority of customers will be best served by two primary editions of Windows 7:

  • Windows 7 Home Premium is the new entry level, with Media Center and better backup features than the equivalent Vista edition.
  • Windows 7 Professional replaces Vista Business. It includes every feature from Home Premium (Media Center included) plus Remote Desktop host and support for Windows domains. It’s a straight upgrade from Home Premium.
  • Windows 7 Ultimate and Windows 7 Enterprise are the same product, with the Enterprise name used for customers who buy in huge volume through Select license agreements.
