Jeff Alexander provides more detailed information about what’s included in each of the Windows 7 editions, along with their target audience.
In February we announced the final list of the different editions of Windows 7 that will be available. As I’ve been travelling around talking to IT Pro’s there has been a lot of discussion around this topic. An din particular what version is right for me and what features will be in that version. So first up there will be 6 editions of Windows 7.
- Home Basic
- Home Premium
So the obvious first question is what market are each of these targeted at? The slide below gives you a quick overview.

Another slide on Jeff’s blog details feature by feature what you get in each SKU. Unfortunately Home Basic will not be receiving Aero Glass and the advanced window navigation features in higher tier SKUs such as Thumbnail Previews and Desktop Preview. Other features that will not be included included no Home Group support (how ironic), and no DVD Playback support. I also think Microsoft is making mistake by not including Windows Complete PC Backup in Home Basic and Home Premium.
