Windows 8 N and Windows 8 E versions?

April 26, 2011
Views Seems like Microsoft is compiling multiple editions of Windows 8 which makes sense. What is strange is that they are allegedly compiling Windows 8 E versions. Windows E versions harken back to the dark days of the Antitrust battle against governments re: Internet Explorer. Microsoft agreed to randomize a browser ballot screen which seemed to settle the issue re: bundled Internet Explorer and the E editions were scrapped in July of 2009. It’s interesting that they are showing up here again… [caption id="attachment_3095" align="alignnone" width="590"]Windows 8N And Windows 8E Windows 8N And Windows 8E[/caption] Also interesting is the fact that Microsoft all the Windows 7 versions are back again:

  • Starter
  • Home Basic
  • Home Premium
  • Professional
  • Enterprise
  • Ultimate
