Windows By all early reports, Windows 8 is going to be a good operating system. Microsoft's hegemony may be crumbling in a mobile computing onslaught, but its core empire remains undimmed. However, whereas Windows 7 had three versions, Windows 8 will apparently be ballooning to 9 versions.

It's becoming a red herring, really. Nobody buys a boxed copy, and new computers all ship with the same version: Home Premium. Everything else will only be seen by those who actually really need it (businesses and geeks).

As much as I'd like them to offer one, singular version, I've never heard anyone outside of our geek circle give two shits about this.
