Official differences between editions of Windows 7

My first news. Don't be harsh.

Quote:
As Microsoft unveils the release candidate to TechNet and MSDN customers today we at Neowin wanted to answer that burning question, what is the difference between all these Windows 7 versions?

Microsoft supplied us with the following diagrams
and we thought about re-doing them and making them pretty but they are what they are so without further ado....

That is the official list of features and comparision charts. I can't tell if Neowin is a good source though. The news was posted on April 30 2009.

This may be a dumb question but how about the ability to create a system image? I see "advanced back-up" there but I don't think that's it. I want to know if Home Premium is going to have "create system image" in it. I can't seem to find out.

Well, in the first graph thing, it shows Back-up and Restore, so I assume thats what you are reffering to. Its available for Home Premium.

This is interesting though, thanks for the information Lebon14.

But, you can see "advanced Back-up (Network and group policy)" for Pro & Ultimate only

Under Vista you have the Back-up feature but with HP edition you can only backup data, you must have Pro editionfor System Back-up

Hard to say if Seven will have the same difference.

Why do people make a big deal out of multiple versions? Everyone bashes Windows Ultimate. Sounds like they are jealous because they can't dish out $200 for the top product.

Just read the friggin' comments on that page.
