Today Microsoft officially revealed all of the different editions of Windows 10. This is common practice for Microsoft, the company has regularly launched ‘Home’, ‘Pro’ and ‘Enterprise’ editions of its operating systems for years and Windows 10 won’t be breaking tradition.
Windows 10 Home is Microsoft’s “consumer-focused” edition of the OS, which will ship on most pre-built PCs and laptops. It will include all of the main features of Windows 10 but there will also be a Windows 10 Pro edition, as you would expect. The pro edition will include the ability for businesses to connect domains to take advantage of some business features.
Microsoft is renaming Windows Phone to Windows Mobile, although all Microsoft smartphones will technically be running Windows 10. Windows Mobile will take advantage of touch oriented apps and a touch oriented user interface. There will also be an Enterprise edition of Windows Mobile, which is designed for large businesses with lots of devices.
Aside from the several main editions of the operating system, there will be Windows 10 Education, Windows 10 IoT Core and Windows 10 Enterprise. In total, there will be seven editions of Microsoft’s latest operating system, which still doesn’t have a release date.
