Microsoft has officially verified the editions for Windows Vista a week after the information leaked when it prematurely appeared on the company’s Web site.
Vista will have six core editions, four aimed at consumers and two aimed at the enterprise, says Neil Charney, Microsoft’s director of Windows product management. The consumer editions are Windows Vista Starter, Windows Vista Home Basic, Windows Vista Home Premium, and Windows Vista Ultimate; the business editions are Windows Vista Business and Windows Vista Enterprise.
