Windows 7: Wish list for a smaller smarter Windows 8

Wish list for a smaller smarter Windows 8

Wish list for a smaller smarter Windows 8.

1) Make Windows 8 one (1) DVD with all versions on it. You install what you have a license for. I am so tired and frustrated when you have to find the correct DVD or have to download it from TechNet to do a repair install. Microsoft has done this with Windows Server 2008 R2 do it with the workstation as well. (Yes there are hacks/procedures to do this on you own with workstation or questionable ISO on the internet; I want it direct from Microsoft so you know it is done correctly.)

2) On the above note give us a lot of choices on that first install menu.
Windows 8 PE --> to Disk --> Burn CD --> Create ISO --> to USB Drive
Windows 8 VDI --> to Disk --> Burn CD (VL Only) --> Create ISO (VL Only) --> to USB Drive
Windows 8 Kiosk --> to Disk --> Burn CD (VL Only) --> Create ISO (VL Only) --> to USB Drive
Windows 8 Starter
Windows 8 Home --> normal --> slim
Windows 8 Professional --> normal OR --> slim Then --> enterprise (different install) --> small business (different install) --> home user w/Network (different install) --> home user w/Network and server (different install) --> home user 1 PC (different install)
Windows 8 Ultimate --> enterprise (different install) --> small business (different install) --> home user w/Network (different install) --> home user w/Network and server (different install) --> home user 1 PC (different install)
Windows 8 Enterprise --> normal --> slim
(Enterprise extras: RDP 2 sessions w\console logon {like Server}; internet RDP via your enterprise secure server or Microsoft Hosted {like TeamViewer or hamachi}; locked workstation force logoff with SAVE & EXIT running documents; theft/disgruntle lockout and/or disable machine and/or release licenses; Enable/Disable Virtual Software install with full logging {User without Admin Right can install software, when machine reboots no traces of software}; accept hidden password in VBScript as well as in all admin functions and command line utilities.)

--> = options after OS type is selected.

Thoughts???

Umm...This is already the case, has been since Windows Vista. On the Windows 7 iso remove ei.cfg and you now have access to every single version...well almost. 32bit and 64bit come on different DVDs.

And your second wish thing is just way to complicated.

Windows 7...Ultimate x64
 
 

I think Microsoft should just ABANDON the idea of DIFFERENT OS's versions. No more Home Premium, and Professional. Just sell Ultimate. Much better... (T . T)

Will never happen. The consumer users don't need everything the corporate users need, thus Home and Professional. Ultimate is merely a combination of both.

They could sell just Ultimate as the one version, and when installing, choose what features you want. Basic, for average home use, and Advanced , extra features for business uses.

But then that's kinda just stating your 1) idea now =P

And why do they sell professional...Why can't they just sell Home & Ultimate...
