6 versions of Vista

I think Microsoft didn't learn the unix lesson correctly. Vista will have 6 different versions instead of have one only basic version with the option to buy "modules".

Even the server/desktop artificial diferentiation should be eliminated. Any linux distribution can be used as server or as desktop only installing different profiles or program sets.
