Microsoft Confirms There Will Be 7 Editions of Windows 10

Microsoft just cleared up some of the confusion around the different varieties of Windows 10 that will be available when it ships later this year. The company confirmed Wednesday that the operating system will come in seven different editions, including desktop and mobile versions for homes and businesses, along with offerings for schools and the Internet of Things. This isn't the first time Microsoft has offered different versions of its software — Windows 8 shipped in a number of different editions as well — but this marks the first time Microsoft has clearly outlined exactly how it's positioning its different Windows 10 experiences.
