Microsoft has announced all the editions of their upcoming Windows 10. As expected, they are quite a few, clocking at 7 this time. This announcement also renames Windows 10 for Phones to Windows 10 Mobile. All the editions revealed today are:
- Windows 10 Home
- Windows 10 Pro
- Windows 10 Enterprise
- Windows 10 Mobile
- Windows 10 Mobile Enterprise
- Windows 10 Education
- Windows 10 IoT Core
Starting from Windows 10 Home, it is being called “consumer-focused desktop edition.” It is the edition that will present on most of the home PCs and laptops. It includes all of the main Windows 10 features like the new Microsoft Edge browser, Windows Hello face-recognition, Continuum tablet mode for touch-capable devices, Cortana, Iris, fingerprint login and built-in universal apps. These are enough features that an average users can utilize. It also brings Xbox gaming experience to the table. Xbox One owners have the ability to play their Xbox One games from any Windows 10 PC in their home.
Windows 10 Pro which is built on Windows 10 Home and it offers features that can be utilized by small businesses including security enhancements. Windows 10 Enterprise is built on Windows 10 Pro. It should be the ultimate stop for medium to large-sized organizations because it provides better support and security features. Windows 10 Mobile is for mobile devices and will enable some new devices to take advantage of Continuum for phone, so people can use their phone like a PC when connected to a larger screen. Windows IoT core is aimed for smaller gateway devices.
This is the beginning of the future of Windows as “Windows as a Service” mentioned here. Windows 10 is scheduled to be shipped in summer, according to Microsoft. We currently don’t have any more information on the exact dates of the launch, but we’ll keep you up to date as soon as we do.
