Microsoft Reveals All The Editions That Windows 10 Will Ship In

Microsoft has announced the many different variants that Windows 10 will be available in once it starts shipping to users sometime this summer.
Windows 10
Windows 10 Home is a consumer-focused desktop edition of the upcoming OS, which will get all the new features such as the Edge Browser, Cortana, Hello face recognition and all of the out-of-the-box Universal Apps.
Windows 10 Mobile, as its name might suggest is a version optimized for smaller touch-screen devices such as smartphones and tablets. It boasts the same Universal Apps as Windows 10 Home, along with a touch-friendly version of Office.
Windows 10 Pro is a desktop edition for PCs, tablets and 2-in-1s. It has all the features of the Home edition, but offers businesses more control over their devices and apps. Apart from being more compatible with cloud technologies, users will also get access to Windows Update For Business.
The above-mentioned versions of Windows 10 will be the ones that get delivered to users of Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1 for free within the first year. Apart from these Microsoft will have Windows 10 Enterprise, Windows 10 Education, and Windows 10 IoT Core.
The company says it is on track to launch Windows 10 in summer this year and is built to be delivered as a service rather than a product. That, in fact, might be hinting at the latest revelation that Windows 10 will be the last version of Windows, at least for some time.
Microsoft plans to roll out minor updates for Windows 10, rather than big ones like it has done in the past. So far, there seems to be a lot of excitement surrounding the launch of Windows 10, with the company claiming it already has over 3.9 million Windows Insiders using the software.
